22. The Japanese Game Show
Air Date: 12/10/94
Starring: Chris Farley, Mike Myers, Alec Baldwin, Janeane Garofalo, Laura Kightlinger
In this equally hilarious and disturbing sketch, Chris Farley plays an American tourist who winds up on a game show by mistake while in Japan, thinking he was only visiting the studio to see a recording in action. The poor guy knows he's in trouble when everyone around him is speaking only in Japanese, but it isn't long until the awkward fun takes a dark turn.
In a twist that feels fitting for a Takashi Miike movie, the contestants that answer a question incorrectly are required to hack off their hands with a butcher knife as their delirious host (Mike Myers) looks on. By some miracle, Farley's character manages to guess his way through the questions—but that doesn't necessarily turn out to be a good thing. As it turns out, the producers have something special in store for the participant that makes it to the final around.
