The premise of this show:
recently, Japanese TV has not been able to air many batsu-games (physical punishments) due to social awareness that these shows encourage bullying at school.
Therefore, the show added "subtitles" to explain (make excuse) on why the batsu-games are acceptable.
5 regular cast + Heipo (the executive director)
The English subtitles are not very accurate but okay for most of the part.

Matsumoto's team lost- he has to take the penalty: A day of cream pie hell.
Matsumoto spends his day at his house- his "inner voice" (VO by narrator) tells him what to do
(ie. "ohh I want to get some exercise, I should do some sit ups", etc)

Each guys brought 2 secret guests each to present at the Staring Contest.
These guests are celebrities, a person of the hour, a guy we've seen on a famous commercial, etc, who we least expect to be on a variety show.
The guys do not know who these guests are until they pop their head out.
The unexpected-ness, and the surreal manner makes it very funny for the guys sitting around the table.
The guys bet each round- if they laugh, they loose. If they maintain a straight face, they win the bet.
This segment is a big turning point to the Gaki show-
this became on of the key element to their most popular series- the "Not Allowed To Laugh" series.
