Today on this TV program, a 15 minute segment aired which featured a prank from Berryz Koubou and the staff.
First, Berryz gathered
and signed a bunch of their merchandise.
But, there's one more thing (this is where the "prank" part comes in). Out of the 50 capsules, only 7 of them contains Berryz goods (one per Berryz member of course). The other 43 contains:
lol at the caption, "sexy eco-bag".
So yeah, you have a chance to win some awesome Berryz prizes, but more than likely you'll get the "sexy" prize above. Still, fans lined up,
and readied their wallets in hopes of getting lucky.
Upon inserting their cash, they would get a black capsule containing one of two results,
which they would then trade in to the store clerk for either the joke prize or the Berryz goods if they were lucky.
Although Berryz themselves didn't play an active role in this appearance (their total screen time is about a minute long), still, it's pretty funny and exciting to watch the results.
