Are you ready for an amazing adventure?

0:00:020:00:04

Then join Ed Petrie...

0:00:040:00:06

Oh, I really need a toilet.

0:00:060:00:07

..and his CBBC mates...

0:00:070:00:09

-Spud me, bruv.

-Yes.

0:00:090:00:11

..on a bonkers and brilliant journey around...

0:00:110:00:14

Asia! Asia! Asia!

0:00:140:00:16

It's going to be epic.

0:00:160:00:17

Whoa!

0:00:170:00:19

It's amazing!

0:00:190:00:20

Let's do this.

0:00:210:00:22

We've got loads of brain boggling facts to tell you about.

0:00:220:00:25

Welcome to All Over The Place!

0:00:250:00:27

-Can I watch it?

-You're in it.

0:00:270:00:30

We'll take part in some of Asia's most spectacular

0:00:300:00:33

and craziest events.

0:00:330:00:35

How far's the sea?

0:00:350:00:36

I'm coming to get you!

0:00:360:00:38

So, are you ready to go?

0:00:380:00:40

# All over the place

0:00:400:00:43

# All over the place

0:00:430:00:45

# North, south, east, west

0:00:460:00:47

# On a bizarre quest

0:00:470:00:49

# Me and my mates, all over the place

0:00:490:00:51

# It's true what you've heard, everything is absurd

0:00:510:00:53

# Whatever we do, it's strange but true

0:00:530:00:56

# All over the place

0:00:560:00:58

# All over the place

0:00:580:01:00

# There's stuff to do in Asia that is totally ace

0:01:020:01:04

# And it turns up all over the place! #

0:01:040:01:06

BELL RINGS

0:01:100:01:12

I mean, you don't understand it.

0:01:180:01:20

She was a rare beauty.

0:01:200:01:22

Off the scales.

0:01:220:01:24

I mean, how could she leave me?

0:01:250:01:27

Something smells fishy.

0:01:270:01:28

Maybe next time, you should use one of those giant Chinese fishing nets

0:01:280:01:32

that they've been using here since the 14th century.

0:01:320:01:35

They catch dozens of fish at a time.

0:01:350:01:38

Oh, thanks, Ed. The one that got away, eh?

0:01:380:01:40

Plenty more fish in the sea.

0:01:400:01:42

Fancy a fishy friend?

0:01:450:01:46

Well, you're in the right place.

0:01:460:01:48

These magnificent fishing nets

0:01:480:01:50

have been dipping in and out of the sea, here at Fort Kochi,

0:01:500:01:53

for hundreds of years.

0:01:530:01:56

They work by lowering a giant net into the sea,

0:01:560:01:59

leaving it there for a few minutes,

0:01:590:02:01

before hauling it back up

0:02:010:02:02

using counterweighted boulders.

0:02:020:02:04

And at over ten metres,

0:02:040:02:06

they are as tall as seven Ariana Grandes

0:02:060:02:09

stood on top of one another.

0:02:090:02:11

Ed and Inel, you have 39 seconds

0:02:110:02:15

to find out as much as you can

0:02:150:02:16

about the Chinese fishing nets.

0:02:160:02:19

Ed, you have James,

0:02:190:02:21

who knows all about working the nets.

0:02:210:02:23

Inel, you have Anthony,

0:02:230:02:25

who knows all about their history.

0:02:250:02:27

The one who finds out the most facts is the winner.

0:02:270:02:30

Munnu, rant, onnu -

0:02:300:02:33

go!

0:02:330:02:35

Anthony, how old are the nets?

0:02:350:02:37

The nets are...

0:02:370:02:38

How many people work on them, pulling the ropes?

0:02:400:02:43

What other parts of the world might you find these nets?

0:02:440:02:47

Oh, Asian countries.

0:02:540:02:56

What sort of fish do you catch?

0:02:560:02:58

Silverfish, tiger fish and catfish.

0:03:020:03:04

OK, what's your favourite fish to eat?

0:03:040:03:07

Can't beat a bit of red snapper.

0:03:100:03:11

KLAXON BLARES

0:03:110:03:12

Oh, there goes the klaxon.

0:03:120:03:14

But I think we did pretty well, don't you think, Anthony?

0:03:140:03:16

-Spud me, bruv.

-Yes.

0:03:160:03:18

-Cool.

-And the winner is...

0:03:180:03:21

-..Ed!

-Yes!

0:03:220:03:24

-It's rigged.

-What? The fishing nets?

0:03:240:03:26

Yes, yes, they are.

0:03:260:03:27

'The challenge is on, boys.

0:03:270:03:29

'Can you catch your lunch?'

0:03:290:03:32

Have we ever turned down a challenge from you, voice-over man?

0:03:320:03:35

'Well, not when it involves free food.'

0:03:350:03:38

Harder? Sorry!

0:03:380:03:39

Pull, man.

0:03:390:03:41

The boys are pulling up their first catch.

0:03:410:03:44

I'm getting blisters on my hand already, Ed.

0:03:440:03:46

THEY REPEAT LOCAL PHRASE

0:03:460:03:47

Ed, have you got any gloves?

0:03:470:03:49

This is apparently what you say.

0:03:490:03:50

THEY REPEAT LOCAL PHRASE

0:03:500:03:53

-Got a bit heavy towards the end, there.

-It did.

0:03:530:03:56

HE REPEATS LOCAL PHRASE

0:03:560:03:58

Will there be any fish?

0:03:580:04:00

-Look at that!

-Oh, the first catch of the day.

0:04:000:04:03

Yay!

0:04:030:04:04

Eh?

0:04:040:04:05

Not bad.

0:04:050:04:06

Now all they have to do is drop the net back in and wait a few minutes.

0:04:060:04:10

Yeah, start? OK, good.

0:04:100:04:12

Let's go.

0:04:120:04:14

THEY REPEAT LOCAL PHRASE

0:04:140:04:18

Will it be a bigger catch second time round?

0:04:200:04:22

Oh, would you look at that?

0:04:220:04:25

A big catch today.

0:04:250:04:26

Looky here, James. What's that? What's that? What's that?

0:04:260:04:29

-What have we got?

-Some catfish and anchovy, and this one.

0:04:290:04:32

-Anchovies!

-OK, wow.

0:04:320:04:33

And this is a sea frog.

0:04:330:04:35

-See frog?

-Might give the sea frog a miss.

0:04:350:04:37

-Yeah, leave it.

-Can we have the rest of this for our lunch?

-Yes.

-Lovely.

0:04:370:04:40

-You like it?

-Thanks, James.

0:04:400:04:41

-Love it.

-Nice one, James.

0:04:410:04:43

Here, Ed, I'll carry that if you want.

0:04:430:04:45

No, I'm fine.

0:04:450:04:46

You don't have to carry it too far.

0:04:460:04:48

Local stalls in Fort Kochi

0:04:480:04:50

will fry up your fresh fish

0:04:500:04:52

in front of your very eyes.

0:04:520:04:54

Oh! Ooooh!

0:04:550:04:58

I've got smelly fish all over me now!

0:04:580:05:00

Where am I going to get this cleaned up?

0:05:000:05:02

Er, why don't you try that traditional Keralan wash house?

0:05:020:05:06

-They seem to know what they're doing.

-That's handy, isn't it?

0:05:060:05:09

Oh!

0:05:150:05:16

Hi, I'm Bill Beefy.

0:05:160:05:18

Does your washing powder leave behind milky brew stains?

0:05:180:05:22

Oh.

0:05:260:05:27

Does your machine remove bin juice from your favourite clothes?

0:05:270:05:30

Uh-uh.

0:05:300:05:31

Do you know what you need?

0:05:310:05:33

To stop drinking bin juice and milky brews?

0:05:330:05:36

Who is this guy?

0:05:360:05:37

Shush! We're in an advert.

0:05:370:05:39

What you need

0:05:390:05:41

is a traditional Keralan wash house.

0:05:410:05:43

A traditional Caroline what house?

0:05:430:05:46

A traditional Keralan wash house,

0:05:460:05:48

like the dhobi ghat in Fort Kochi.

0:05:480:05:51

It's your one-stop shop for washing,

0:05:510:05:54

drying and ironing all your clothes.

0:05:540:05:56

Hi, I'm Bill Beefy.

0:05:590:06:01

With a traditional Keralan wash house,

0:06:010:06:04

you can say goodbye to hours of tedious loading and unloading

0:06:040:06:08

-of your washing machine.

-Oh, great!

0:06:080:06:10

And say hello to even more hours

0:06:100:06:13

of tedious washing by hand.

0:06:130:06:15

You what?

0:06:150:06:16

Shush, he's paying us to be in this ad in dog biccies.

0:06:160:06:20

Oh-oh-oh!

0:06:200:06:21

At a traditional Keralan wash house,

0:06:240:06:26

there are no washing machines.

0:06:260:06:28

But what they lack in modern household convenience,

0:06:280:06:31

they sure make up for

0:06:310:06:32

in concrete booths

0:06:320:06:34

filled with soapy water.

0:06:340:06:36

42 of them.

0:06:360:06:38

Perfect for cleaning all your dhotis.

0:06:380:06:40

Excuse me, my dhotis are perfectly clean, thank you!

0:06:400:06:44

No, they're traditional Indian clothes, cocker, look behind you.

0:06:440:06:48

All your favourite garments are then dried

0:06:480:06:50

using the latest in air technology,

0:06:500:06:52

the wind.

0:06:520:06:54

Hey, you're pretty windy, Dodge, you could help there.

0:06:540:06:57

And finally, neatly pressed

0:06:570:06:59

using 100% safe

0:06:590:07:01

giant electric irons.

0:07:010:07:03

That sounds like a lot of work to me.

0:07:030:07:05

If all that sounds like a lot of work to you...

0:07:050:07:08

No, no, it doesn't.

0:07:080:07:09

Then do not fear,

0:07:090:07:10

because a traditional Keralan wash house

0:07:100:07:13

comes with an army of traditional Keralans called dhobis.

0:07:130:07:17

They will wash, dry and iron your clothes for you.

0:07:170:07:20

All right, he sold it to me.

0:07:200:07:22

Only one problem.

0:07:220:07:23

-What's that?

-We're dogs.

0:07:230:07:24

We don't wear clothes.

0:07:240:07:26

BOTH: Oh!

0:07:260:07:28

Bye, I'm Bill Beefy.

0:07:280:07:30

You're fired.

0:07:300:07:32

BELL RINGS

0:07:360:07:38

CATS MEOW

0:07:450:07:46

Look at this!

0:07:460:07:49

Wow.

0:07:490:07:50

Or should that be...

0:07:500:07:52

meow?

0:07:520:07:53

This is Temari no Ouchi,

0:07:530:07:55

one of 40 cat cafes in Tokyo.

0:07:550:07:57

The city has a population of 13 million,

0:07:570:08:00

which means most apartments

0:08:000:08:01

are small and don't allow pets,

0:08:010:08:03

so these special cafes

0:08:030:08:04

let people spend time with animals

0:08:040:08:06

whilst having a lovely cuppa.

0:08:060:08:08

And it's themed like a fairy tale palace,

0:08:080:08:10

or should that be a furry-tail palace?

0:08:100:08:12

Wow! This place is like a magical forest!

0:08:140:08:17

What a great cat-mosphere.

0:08:170:08:19

'Here we go again.

0:08:190:08:20

'Look at these two.'

0:08:200:08:22

'I haven't seen them at the cafe before.'

0:08:220:08:25

'Oh, purr-fect, more tourists, no doubt hoping to get a cat selfie.'

0:08:250:08:29

'They're not just any tourists.

0:08:300:08:32

'OMG, it's only Ed Petrie and Vic Cook off the telly!

0:08:320:08:34

'I think I'm hyperventilating!'

0:08:340:08:36

CAT HYPERVENTILATES

0:08:360:08:37

'There she goes again.

0:08:370:08:39

'Too much catnip. Anyway, I don't care who they are.

0:08:390:08:41

'They still have to follow our rules.'

0:08:410:08:43

'Stop touching me. I don't like my head getting stroked.'

0:08:430:08:45

That's right. Rules are rules.

0:08:450:08:47

Rules?

0:08:480:08:50

Rule number one, no hugging the cats.

0:08:500:08:53

You can stroke them but don't pick them up.

0:08:530:08:56

Rule number two,

0:08:560:08:57

no feeding them human food

0:08:570:08:59

and if they have a ribbon around their neck,

0:08:590:09:01

it means they're on a diet.

0:09:010:09:03

And finally, rule number three,

0:09:040:09:06

no flash photography.

0:09:060:09:08

Some of the cats don't like the bright lights.

0:09:080:09:12

Is there a menu round here?

0:09:120:09:13

Hey, we could have a cat tea party.

0:09:130:09:15

Urgh, this menu's different to any I've ever seen before.

0:09:170:09:20

It's full of pictures of cats instead of food.

0:09:200:09:23

Well, I'm looking for a cup of tea

0:09:230:09:24

with a cat biscuit on the side,

0:09:240:09:26

and a Temari, whatever that is.

0:09:260:09:28

Oh, this isn't a menu!

0:09:280:09:30

It's a book about all the cats that live here.

0:09:300:09:33

That is Temari, the first-ever cat.

0:09:330:09:36

She's also the leader of the group.

0:09:360:09:38

This cafe was also named after her.

0:09:380:09:41

You can learn the name and breed of all the cats here,

0:09:410:09:44

using that handy book.

0:09:440:09:46

'Let's play Copycats!'

0:09:460:09:48

BOTH: Hello! And welcome to...

0:09:500:09:53

Copy...

0:09:530:09:54

Cats!

0:09:540:09:55

We've got to paw-sitively identify cats from this book.

0:09:550:09:59

But once we've found them,

0:09:590:10:02

we will copy that cat.

0:10:020:10:04

'First up is an exotic short hair.

0:10:040:10:07

'He may look grumpy

0:10:070:10:08

'but that's just his face.

0:10:080:10:11

'It's Matthew!

0:10:110:10:13

'Copy that cat.'

0:10:130:10:14

'Purr-fect!

0:10:220:10:24

'Watami is next.

0:10:240:10:25

'He's white and playful.

0:10:250:10:28

'Found him? Now, copy that cat!'

0:10:280:10:31

'Miaow-vellous.

0:10:430:10:46

'Finally, can you find the Norwegian cat Figaro?

0:10:460:10:50

'There he is.

0:10:500:10:51

'Copy that cat!'

0:10:530:10:55

'Cat's all, till next time.'

0:11:020:11:05

I'm enjoying my cat-uccino.

0:11:090:11:11

What a purr-fect way to spend the day!

0:11:110:11:15

It's so relaxing in here.

0:11:150:11:17

That's a nice cat, isn't it?

0:11:170:11:19

Oh!

0:11:190:11:21

Hello.

0:11:210:11:22

Ed!

0:11:220:11:23

Give us that back.

0:11:230:11:25

Don't you remember rule number two?

0:11:250:11:26

You're wearing your ribbon. I thought you were on a diet.

0:11:260:11:29

Please, Ed. I've not had my elevenses.

0:11:290:11:31

You're wearing a ribbon!

0:11:310:11:33

Security! Security!

0:11:330:11:35

BICKERING CONTINUES

0:11:360:11:38

-Pfft! Humans, eh?

-I know.

0:11:380:11:40

Shall we go in there and sort it out?

0:11:400:11:43

Na, they're probably fighting over food or something.

0:11:430:11:45

They're simple creatures.

0:11:450:11:46

Yeah, must be an easy life, being human.

0:11:460:11:48

I wouldn't say no.

0:11:480:11:49

Seriously? You'd rather be a human than a cat?

0:11:490:11:52

Yeah, I reckon it'd be great.

0:11:520:11:55

Not starting a fight with my own reflection

0:11:550:11:58

and reading a newspaper rather than weeing on it.

0:11:580:12:00

What about all the cool cat stuff you'd miss out on?

0:12:000:12:03

Like what?

0:12:030:12:04

Erm, lives, for starters.

0:12:040:12:06

Humans have only got one life.

0:12:060:12:08

Us cats have got nine.

0:12:080:12:10

No, I think that's a myth.

0:12:100:12:13

Is it?

0:12:130:12:14

I should be more careful crossing roads.

0:12:140:12:17

What about speed and agility?

0:12:170:12:19

A domestic cat can run at 30mph.

0:12:190:12:21

Humans can't.

0:12:210:12:22

But they don't have to.

0:12:220:12:24

Humans have cars, haven't they? And money.

0:12:240:12:26

Some cats have money.

0:12:260:12:28

I knew this cat in Italy that was left 13 million

0:12:280:12:30

when his owner died.

0:12:300:12:32

Wow, how did he cope with that?

0:12:320:12:34

I don't know. He's got new friends now.

0:12:340:12:37

Well, they do say that cats aren't loyal.

0:12:370:12:40

SHE GASPS

0:12:400:12:41

And thumbs!

0:12:410:12:43

Humans have proper opposable thumbs!

0:12:430:12:45

Imagine having a cup of tea

0:12:450:12:47

and being able to pick it up!

0:12:470:12:50

I prefer licking from a saucer.

0:12:500:12:52

-You don't.

-No, I do.

0:12:520:12:53

-You don't.

-I do.

-You don't.

0:12:530:12:54

-I do.

-You don't!

THEY HISS

0:12:560:12:59

Look, we're not going to find any common ground

0:12:590:13:01

when it comes to humans, so let's just drop the subject.

0:13:010:13:03

What do you think about dogs?

0:13:070:13:08

-Can't stand them.

-Oh, couldn't agree more!

0:13:080:13:11

SHE GIGGLES

0:13:110:13:12

-Oh.

-Aargh!

0:13:140:13:16

Again!

0:13:160:13:17

I told you.

-No, Chris.

I always come prepared when travelling.

0:17:110:17:13

Oh, Ed, you can take being prepared too far, you know.

0:17:130:17:17

Do be prepared, though,

0:17:170:17:19

for this bonkers collection

0:17:190:17:21

of toilets through the ages.

0:17:210:17:22

They come in unbelievable shapes and sizes and, for some reason,

0:17:220:17:26

quite a lot of them seem to be disguised as something else.

0:17:260:17:30

What's this table doing here?

0:17:310:17:33

This table is a table toilet.

0:17:330:17:35

Whoa!

0:17:350:17:37

It is a toilet.

0:17:370:17:38

And it is such a beautiful piece

0:17:380:17:41

that one can sit on it,

0:17:410:17:42

one can eat on it,

0:17:420:17:43

and of course, one can poo in it.

0:17:430:17:45

The whole lot! This is the greatest...

0:17:450:17:47

-All three in one.

-This is the greatest invention I've ever seen.

0:17:470:17:50

-Not to be pooh-poohed.

-I'm going to have...

0:17:500:17:52

I'm going to get five of these for my house.

0:17:520:17:54

Yeah, remind me never to come over to that barbecue of yours!

0:17:540:17:57

TOILET FLUSHES

0:17:590:18:01

It's a poo-poo piggy bank.

0:18:010:18:02

Did you do that?

0:18:060:18:08

I don't think I want to handle any money from that piggy bank,

0:18:080:18:11

thank you very much!

0:18:110:18:12

And anyway, nearly three and a half billion people around the world

0:18:120:18:15

don't have access to real toilets at all,

0:18:150:18:18

never mind piggy bank bogs.

0:18:180:18:20

And talking of annoying things that won't flush away...

0:18:200:18:23

'Welcome to The Game Of Thrones!'

0:18:230:18:26

While I ask the questions, I want you to clean toilets with this.

0:18:260:18:30

That's my toothbrush!

0:18:300:18:32

-Where did you get this from?

-Your suitcase.

0:18:320:18:34

You should lock your windows.

0:18:340:18:36

This toilet is disguised as a candle.

0:18:390:18:42

But why?

0:18:420:18:44

Is it A, a memorial candle,

0:18:440:18:47

to light in honour of your dearly departed poo?

0:18:470:18:50

Or is it B, a scented candle

0:18:500:18:53

to cover up the smell of your awful business?

0:18:530:18:56

Is it A?

0:18:560:18:57

PPPFFFRRRT!

0:18:570:18:59

Oh, Chris,

0:18:590:19:00

that noise that I recorded earlier

0:19:000:19:02

means that your answer is a stinker!

0:19:020:19:05

It's B, a scented candle.

0:19:050:19:07

Ha-ha!

0:19:090:19:10

This mechanical contraption of a toilet

0:19:100:19:13

converts your doo-doo into this.

0:19:130:19:16

But what is it?

0:19:160:19:17

Is it A, whatever you had for breakfast?

0:19:170:19:20

That's right.

0:19:200:19:21

I eat gravel for breakfast.

0:19:210:19:23

Or is it B, it cremates your doo-doo into ash?

0:19:230:19:28

I'm going to go with A.

0:19:280:19:30

PPPFFFRRRT!

0:19:300:19:31

Oh, Chris, no, no!

0:19:310:19:33

It's B!

0:19:330:19:34

You made a right number two of that question!

0:19:340:19:37

Clean it! Yes, I'm cleaning.

0:19:400:19:41

Stand on it. Stand on it.

0:19:410:19:43

Squat.

0:19:430:19:45

Next question.

0:19:450:19:47

What is this?

0:19:470:19:48

Is it a double pit composting toilet

0:19:480:19:51

for making, well, compost?

0:19:510:19:54

Or B, a squatting toilet for gymnasts?

0:19:540:19:57

I'm going to say A again.

0:19:570:19:59

-TOILET FLUSHES

-Chris, that's correct!

0:19:590:20:02

-Is it?

-But you've only got one point.

0:20:020:20:04

No regal crown for you.

0:20:040:20:06

Now push off.

0:20:060:20:07

I've got some unfinished business to attend to.

And to keep my feet happy are...

0:20:480:20:51

BOTH: Socks and sandals.

0:20:510:20:53

'Oh, I don't know about the socks, you pair of posers,

0:20:530:20:57

'but sandals are all the rage here in Fukushima in August.'

0:20:570:21:00

That's when the Waraji Matsuri, or sandal festival, is in full stride.

0:21:000:21:06

It's a two-day funfest that kicks off

0:21:060:21:08

with a giant 12-metre straw sandal

0:21:080:21:11

being carried through the city

0:21:110:21:12

and it weighs a whopping two tonnes.

0:21:120:21:15

It's taken to a local shrine

0:21:150:21:17

where people pray for safe travel

0:21:170:21:19

and strong legs.

0:21:190:21:21

Speaking of which, that's what Ed and Johny will need

0:21:210:21:23

when they join teams racing with some slightly more manageable

0:21:230:21:27

giant straw sandals.

0:21:270:21:29

Best foot forward, boys!

0:21:290:21:31

I thought my sandal was big.

0:21:310:21:32

-That's what I call a sandal.

-It's absolutely massive.

0:21:320:21:35

I wonder where the other one is?

0:21:350:21:36

Excuse me. You don't happen to know where the other sandal is, do you?

0:21:360:21:39

-TRANSLATION:

-Yes, of course I do.

0:21:390:21:41

-Yeah.

-Oh. That was a coincidence.

0:21:410:21:44

Yes, imagine bumping into Mr Hideo Ogawara,

0:21:440:21:48

the director of the sandal festival,

0:21:480:21:50

just when you had some questions needing answers.

0:21:500:21:53

It's almost like it was planned...

0:21:530:21:55

What does the event involve?

0:21:550:21:56

What have we got to do?

0:21:560:21:57

-TRANSLATION:

-Well, you'll be in teams of ten people,

0:21:570:22:00

carrying a five-metre straw sandal, weighing 100kg,

0:22:000:22:03

over 240 metres against the clock.

0:22:030:22:06

It's a difficult process.

0:22:070:22:09

I can't think of anything I'd rather do

0:22:090:22:11

on a boiling hot, 40 degree day(!)

0:22:110:22:13

So, so what do we need to do to win, then?

0:22:130:22:16

-TRANSLATION:

-Well, you'll need strong legs, to work together

0:22:160:22:18

and hope for good luck.

0:22:180:22:20

Lots of good luck is essential.

0:22:200:22:21

Considering my feet, I'm definitely going to be wishing for luck.

0:22:210:22:25

Well, as luck would have it,

0:22:250:22:27

there is somewhere nearby

0:22:270:22:29

you can wish for good luck.

0:22:290:22:31

These are tanabata,

0:22:310:22:32

and local people write their wishes on them

0:22:320:22:34

and pin them to these bamboo trees to try and make them come true.

0:22:340:22:38

"My wish, to beat Ed Petrie of CBBC fame in the sandal race."

0:22:390:22:44

Ha-ha-ha!

0:22:440:22:46

I'm wishing for a long, happy and healthy life.

0:22:460:22:49

Actually, scrub that. I want to beat Johny!

0:22:510:22:53

Ha-ha-ha!

0:22:530:22:55

Oi, what are you doing?

0:22:550:22:56

I'm just wishing that we'll be friends forever and ever.

0:22:560:22:59

No, you're not. You're wishing to beat me!

0:22:590:23:01

Well, what are you wishing for?

0:23:010:23:02

-To beat you!

-Well, you can't do that.

0:23:020:23:04

-They'll cancel each other out.

-Don't care.

-No, no, no.

0:23:040:23:07

-I put mine on first. Why should you put yours on?

-I had the idea first.

0:23:070:23:09

No, no, you shouldn't be able to do that because I put mine on...

0:23:090:23:13

OK, pack it in, you two, save it for the race.

0:23:130:23:17

You've got to track down your racing sandals.

0:23:170:23:19

Shouldn't be too hard.

0:23:190:23:21

They're not exactly small and not exactly light.

0:23:210:23:24

How much do they weigh again?

0:23:240:23:25

Erm, 100 kilos.

0:23:250:23:27

What?

0:23:270:23:28

100 kilos?!

0:23:280:23:30

That's about the same weight as a plump baby elephant!

0:23:300:23:34

Luckily, there are a group of sort of, ten of us, I think, per team.

0:23:340:23:37

So, I don't know who these guys are.

0:23:370:23:39

Are you Team Johny?

0:23:390:23:41

Yes, OK, Team Johny.

0:23:410:23:42

-Team Ed?

-No, Johny!

0:23:420:23:45

Yes! Yes!

0:23:450:23:47

No-one wants to be in my team.

0:23:470:23:48

Yeah, you've got to carry yours on your own, Ed.

0:23:480:23:51

What?

0:23:510:23:52

How far have we got to take this thing, then?

0:23:520:23:54

Erm, over 200 metres.

0:23:540:23:56

Over 200 metres?

0:23:560:23:58

You'll notice that I haven't been specific about the distance.

0:23:580:24:01

How long is it, voice-over man?

0:24:030:24:05

It's 240 metres, Ed.

0:24:050:24:08

Easy-peasy for your team of ten,

0:24:080:24:10

except for carrying that sandal

0:24:100:24:11

weighing the same as a baby elephant, of course.

0:24:110:24:13

Oh, and did I mention getting buckets of water thrown at you?

0:24:130:24:16

I didn't? My bad!

0:24:160:24:18

Yes, they do that, too, just for fun!

0:24:180:24:21

Ichi, Ni, San!

0:24:230:24:24

How's your team getting on over there, Ed?

0:24:240:24:27

-We're ready.

-Erm...

0:24:270:24:29

Team Ed?

0:24:290:24:30

LAUGHTER

0:24:300:24:32

Team Edo-san?

0:24:320:24:33

I think the luck is on my side!

0:24:350:24:36

Hang on, Johny.

0:24:370:24:39

This is actually a problem.

0:24:390:24:40

Ed "no-mates" was meant to have a team

0:24:400:24:42

but there's no sign of them,

0:24:420:24:44

and the race is about to begin.

0:24:440:24:46

Just when we thought everything was going to plan!

0:24:460:24:49

So much for Japanese timekeeping and efficiency.

0:24:490:24:52

Where are these guys?

0:24:520:24:54

I've got an empty sandal, here.

0:24:540:24:56

I know, it's almost as if someone else has got all the luck!

0:24:560:24:59

Oh, hang on. Are you...? Are you my team?

0:25:010:25:05

Team Ed? Edo-san?

0:25:050:25:07

THEY MURMUR AGREEMENT

0:25:070:25:09

-Hurray!

-THEY CHEER

0:25:090:25:10

At last.

0:25:100:25:13

Yeah, yes, at last.

0:25:130:25:14

Now, can we please do this?

0:25:140:25:17

HE CLEARS THROAT

0:25:170:25:18

DEEP VOICEOVER: In the battle of the sandals,

0:25:180:25:20

there can be only one winner.

0:25:200:25:22

Today has already been filled

0:25:220:25:24

with sandals large and small.

0:25:240:25:26

But when it comes down to it,

0:25:260:25:28

who will be STEPPING up

0:25:280:25:31

to take the All Over The Place trophy?

0:25:310:25:34

NORMAL VOICE: Who writes this stuff?

0:25:340:25:36

OK, let's get started.

0:25:360:25:38

Three, two, one, go!

0:25:380:25:41

Give it some welly, boys!

0:25:430:25:45

Or should that be, "Give it sandals, boys"?

0:25:450:25:48

Water, anyone? Very refreshing.

0:25:480:25:51

I tell you what, Johny's team are off to a flying start but Team Ed...

0:25:510:25:55

What's going on over there? They're lagging well behind.

0:25:550:25:57

It looks like our very tall Ed

0:25:570:25:59

is finding it tough to get that sandal on his shoulder.

0:25:590:26:02

That's good news for Team Johny

0:26:020:26:04

but Team Ed will have to pick up the pace,

0:26:040:26:06

and the sandal, to pull this back.

0:26:060:26:09

I can't stand up straight!

0:26:090:26:11

Someone's going to have a sore back in the morning.

0:26:110:26:14

And it's starting to look like a...

0:26:180:26:19

"shoe-in" for Team Johny.

0:26:190:26:22

"Shoe-in"? Never mind.

0:26:220:26:24

Ed can't quite seem to handle the sandal!

0:26:240:26:26

INDISTINCT

0:26:290:26:31

-No more water!

-Yes, more water, Ed.

0:26:330:26:35

We need to make sure you don't dehydrate.

0:26:350:26:38

Oh, no luck, Ed,

0:26:380:26:40

Johny's team are giving you a shoeing

0:26:400:26:42

and Team Johny are the first

0:26:420:26:44

to get a toe over the line.

0:26:440:26:47

Oh, well, poor Ed's team are left to stumble to the finish.

0:26:490:26:54

Like stumbly, finishy-late people.

0:26:540:26:56

And with the race ever, there's nothing left to do

0:26:590:27:01

but congratulations,

0:27:010:27:03

and some hugging, I guess, and, oh, a bow.

0:27:030:27:05

Maybe a high five? Yeah!

0:27:050:27:07

And maybe... Oh, and throw Johny in the air.

0:27:070:27:10

Put him down! We need some post-race excuses.

0:27:100:27:13

That's not fair.

0:27:130:27:14

Look how short my team are!

0:27:140:27:17

Well, my team aren't particularly tall, but something tells me we...

0:27:170:27:21

We had all the luck.

0:27:210:27:23

Yeah, what about my lucky tree?

0:27:230:27:25

My lucky tree!

0:27:250:27:26

-TRANSLATION:

-And the winner is Johny!

0:27:260:27:28

Arigato! Yes!

0:27:280:27:30

Some guys have all the luck.

0:27:300:27:32

Time to put my feet up.

0:27:320:27:34

You've been watching All Over The Place: Asia!

0:27:360:27:39

HORN BLARES

0:27:460:27:48
