OKAY, fellow gay tacos, help me out here~? X3

I'm going back to Georgia for a couple of weeks and in that span I'll get to hang out with a couple of friends of mine X3 I'm bringing my external HD with me so I can uh, spread the arashi love. So here's my question to you guys:
what do you recommend showing to someone who is completely arashi-clueless?

Only the maximum in lols will suffice! Help, please! X3 And be specific? X3 What do you think are the funniest/most endearing arashi episodes/clips out there? X3

Well, I'll share what I've shown to my sister, who is Arashi-clueless.

Basically any subbed version of the board games from G no Arashi or Christmas Shukudaikun. Shukudaikun has maximum laughs without the annoying meaningless older C/D/G clips like the 3rd G Board game - which is better than the first two because it really hit its stride then.
(Don't know the G numbers, but they're easy to find out - Shukudaikun ep is 12, or 13, I forget.)

I would also recommend any maximum bang for buck Shukudaikun episodes and I'll have to think about which ones - right now what comes to mind are episodes that involve spicy food or Ailando games, like the running on the white goop whose name I forget (which also involves nipples!)

Aiba with Engrish and animals from Tensai Shimura Doubutsuen is good but I don't know much about TSD since it pisses me off. XD

A concert might be good - I would recommend Final Time or AAA in Dome since they hit their stride more recently.

The haunted house episodes of Himitsu no Arashi-chan - they've been subbed and I showed my sister those and she snorted her ass off.

Odoroki specials are good since they're highly entertaining and mostly subbed.

D no Arashi is AMAZING. The first episode where Nino and Ohno do the backwards stuff (and I can find episode numbers if you'd like) was a winner with my sister AND aunt; any A no Arashi episodes; I mean, the whole last half/third of D is pretty good, plus it's all subbed by TaijiProject. I could go through there and pick out at least 30 episodes I think other people Arashi-clueless would love. (And I will, if you want me to.)

Mago Mago Arashi has a bunch of cute to it, but I can't think off the top of my head which episode would be good to share. If they get really invested in the other stuff, the Rowing Saga is a good thing to share to get them to really fall in love with the boys, but I think it might be tedious otherwise. Though the children's dinner episodes are generally entertaining.

I might also show them a drama or two - I'm sending my Arashi-clueless friend Hana Yori Dango, Ryusei no Kizuna, Maou, and Kisarazu Cat's Eye. And, I think it's always wise to have Pika*Nchi on hand.

That's my recommendation. XD

As I said, if you need actual links to all of these or episode numbers, let me know.

MWA!

Hmmm... I agree with all Tey's suggestions and here are a few more:

The episode of D no Arashi with the paper boat and the episode where Nino and Jun keeping having to do things that could very likely get them killed (like harrassing yankees XD).

Any of the foot torture from nama arashi.

The Kitto Daijoubu video!

Childminder, especially if they involve Aiba, Jun or Ohno.

The clip of Aiba falling into a hole. 8D

The TSD clip where Aiba is talking about his five closest brushes with death on the show (Becky just subbed it so it's up at [livejournal.com profile] taijiprojectsub. :3)

The G no Arashi Ni no Arashi special, because it's clearly brilliant. XD

And I think Tey pretty much covered the rest. XD

Hey, even my 4 year old brother loves Odoroki, so that's another vote from me! My sister also loves any of the boat clips XD

My random guy friend found the diletancy game amusing, but I think there are funnier Shukudai eps out there, probably. The Christmas board game one was definitely amazing (I remember just dying when I first saw that XD)

Sho's picture matching game from G no Arashi is also a winner.

And yeah, you know I love the rowing club stuff, but... I think that's probably more because I've done rowing and was all 'I'm really impressed that you guys are doing this even though you're idols ;o;' I don't think it would be interesting for people who don't know Arashi OR rowing X3
