I first saw some of these JFL gags when a friend in college showed me the gag of the gorilla costumed man popping out of the bushes at the zoo. Pretty funny stuff.
Later I was travelling in business and had my next encounter on a Japan Airlines flight of all places. I was laughing so hard that I wasn't able to communicate anything to the flight attendant at mealtime (she was pretty annoyed and I think she thought I was crazy, but I couldn't stop laughing- I was even laughing at myself for the fact that I was in this situation simply from watching a gag show like this, which made the laugter even worse, almost painful). Fast forward about a year, I bought the entire set on VHS. I turned on *some* of my friends (let's face it, it can be an acquired taste) to this stuff.
Enentually I discovered that my "complete set" was only complete at the time it was made in the 80s. So I bought a couple of these newer episodes on DVD. This one made me laugh so hard that I thought I might have to go to the Emergency Room to get the aqueous humor re-instilled into my ruptured eyeballs. One skit in particular just makes me laugh upon visualization. The only skit that ever made me laugh that hard was the one in Candid Camera's boxed set where the dentist tries to up-sell his patients jewelry after their procedures- jewelry and watches encrusted with human teeth- their responses are priceless.
If you are a conneisseur of gags and pranks, you'll like the newer ones. Some are pretty well thought out.
