The men challenge each other's courage by engaging in a modern day jousting matches, using tuner cars and spears while the women stand around in skimpy schoolgirl outfits sucking on lollipops (save for one who dresses as a geisha and acts as a referee). The object of the game is to get as close to injuring their opponent as possible without actually injuring one another. One of the men gets his shoulder cut, causing him to have trouble holding his spear. Intending to slice his opponent back, he accidentally impales him through his eye and all the way out the back of his head.
