While appearing on a reality TV show may give you instant celebrity, the fame is usually fleeting and the costs outweigh the benefits. This is what happened to Tomoaki Hamatsu, aka Nasubi, a Japanese man who foolishly agreed to participate in a “squid game”-style reality show without realising he would be tortured for the next 15 months.
Japanese comedian Tomoaki Hamatsu, better known by his stage name Nasubi, auditioned for the Susunu! Denpa Shonen (roughly translated as “Do Not Proceed!”). Young and insane. From 1998 to 2002, it aired for a total of ten seasons.
Nasubi, on the other hand, never recovered from what had essentially been a roller coaster ride of trials and tribulations.
Please let me know what happened to Nasubi.
The show’s premise is that the contestants will be put through hell and given difficult tasks to complete. The creators are filming and broadcasting their survival struggle to the public.
According to reports, the game show began with Nasubi’s kidnapping and confinement in a small apartment with no furniture, linens, or clothes.
The comedian was tasked with raising £1,000,000 (approximately £5,000,000) using only a small number of magazines advertising cash prizes, according to LadBible.
Nasubi’s journey deteriorated over the course of a year and a half as he was unable to obtain adequate supplies such as food or clothing. The comedian was reportedly given small pieces of bread at the start of the challenge, but this practise was discontinued after a few weeks.
Furthermore, according to media reports, Nasubi spent over 300 days holed up in the building’s apartments before saving enough money to flee. He was given a vacation after achieving his goal, but when it was over, he was returned to the same apartment.
Over 16 million people watched the show’s torture, earning it the title of “most evil” live stream ever.
The torture then continued by having him raise money to pay for first-class tickets back to Tokyo. The final four months of the challenge were spent alone in a different Tokyo apartment.
Nasubi then completed the challenge by stripping naked in order to raise additional funds. The box’s walls collapsed once the comedian was naked, and his appearance was streamed in front of thousands of live audiences, and the show ended there.
Nasubi discussed his experiences in a recent interview, saying they had a significant impact on his mental and physical health.
