We'll get these kids- young kids. You know, 2-3-4 year olds.
We'll tell them their mum or dad (usually mum) really, really NEEDS them to go shopping.
(They'll believe us- they want to help their mums and anyway, they haven't got the cognitive development to question how ridiculous it is yet).
They'll probably be scared. They probably won't want to go- I mean they're just little kids afterall.
But that will make GREAT tv, hey?
What's that? You think it's a bit exploitative? Maybe cruel, psychologically traumatic for the wee mites? The public will slam us for using kids fear and anxiety for adult entertainment?
Nahhh mate, trust me. It'll be a hit. Just check out how it works in Japan:
I chose this episode as it has English in it. This is actually a really happy one. The kids seem keen to go, there's no busy road or hairy intersection involved and they didn't take three hours and as many adults to be convinced to go like the one that was just on tv.
Call me someone with zero sense of humour but I just don't get the premise for this show and why people apply to go on.
