If it helps, 'doki doki' is an onomatopoeia for a beating heart, and is used as a synonym for becoming excited. It is also used in the sense of 'my heart beats faster for you'.

Multiple circular saws. Helicopter. Trees. Power lines.
What could go wrong?

Proverbs 26:26-27
(26)Though his hatred covers itself with guile, His wickedness will be revealed before the assembly. (27)He who digs a pit will fall into it, And he who rolls a stone, it will come back on him.

So, the Japanese are self-regulating and orderly. The Germans also want to be orderly, but feel that they must install an orderly infrastructure to act as a framework (for efficiency?). Americans and Aussies are (sorry, I hope not to offend) pretty similar. EXCEPT that Americans may travel in single-sex groups occasionally. Some Americans also kinda-sorta try to get their ducks in a row, but don't want to be too rigid about it, since they're on vacation. The French are unruly, but some attempt to set themselves as an example, vainly hoping that the others will get a clue.

"Barkley Marathons?" What kind of wimpy name is that? If you want an exciting prison-themed athletic event, you can't beat the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon
http://www.escapefromalcatraztriathlon.com/

Swim the frigid shark-infested waters of San Francisco Bay, with deadly currents that can sweep you halfway to Japan!

If you make landfall, you then have to assault a random bicycle courier and steal his bike for the second event: a bicycle race through the deadly gauntlet of The Financial District!

Finally, running at top speed up the sisyphean hills of San Francisco!

Only the best and toughest will survive! Only the survivors can win!

At Crunchyroll News, there was a post about this promotion:

In commemoration of the releases, the retailers across Japan will distribute "Fujimiya Kaori no Nakeru Tissue" (Kaori's tissue paper for your tears) for free on the release day. [release of the opening song single]

I can't believe Paramount would have passed up such a great product placement opportunity. The permission to use the Klingon insignia on a NASA mission patch would have been there for the asking, I'm sure.

This marketing strategy of trapping people in a 'product ecosystem' is one of the things that I most dislike about Apple. They make high-quality and tightly-integrated products, but you're shackled to their world forever after.

When I was in the fifth grade, one of my teachers was a former police officer. During our P.E. class, he had us do a number of exercises, which he would direct by calling out their names (running in place, sit-ups, etc).
At one point, he called for "Side-straddle hops", which resulted in our general confusion. We stood in the field, not knowing what he asked for. He decided to demonstrate, and we immediately identified the exercise as "Jumping Jacks".
I guessed that the name was not used by the LAPD Academy because it sounded silly.
