Let's Play: Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes!
You have been assigned to a special task force for diffusing virtual bombs. You are required to stay calm, keep your cool, and follow the instructions of your fellow mates as they guide you through the process of cutting wires, hitting buttons, deciphering strange letters, and most importantly, NOT GETTING BLOWN UP (metaphorically speaking). Pass the test and you can win a prize! Fail and you will forever know that you let down a panel room full of potential bomb diffusers down, and also they will be disintegrated from the blast so there's that. If you feel like this is the right job field for you, then come on in and sign up! We will run through a rigorous screening process to select our bomb disposal experts and guides, so be 'ready' for anything ;)

A Word From Our Japanese Sponsors
Advertising is an essential part of the economic machine in any country. As people who watch alot of Japanese television, we happen to see the commercials that go with it. Some are what you'd expect, some will make you question reality. Join the Foundation Pineapple crew as we watch some of our favorites (in an organized fashion this year) and have a good laugh!
