GIFs: Japanese TV Show Gets Celebrities to Bite Furniture & Clothes to Discover if They’re Made of Candy

The past few years have been what many consider to be a golden age of television, with a plethora of high quality shows blurring the boundaries between TV and film, but if you ask us there simply isn’t enough shots of people hesitantly biting pieces of furniture.

No problem though, Japan’s got it covered.

On a recent show, boy band Tokio, comedy duo Banana Man and a number of other celebrities were shown into a room where a number of items were actually desserts made to look like conventional items – a practice known as sokkuri. The guests had to then guess which items were actually foodstuffs… then bite them to prove it.

Here are the results:
