Strange Jeopardy question raises eyebrows

Kids appear confused at Jeopardy question.

Kids appear confused at Jeopardy question.

During an episode of Jeopardy, Alex asked a group of kids a question about a PlayStation Vita game.

The question was, “On Sony’s PS Vita, you can play ‘Touch My’ this Japanese word and roll balls of increasing size around the landscape.” The phrasing of the question has, unsurprisingly, raised more than a few eyebrows.

The answer, for those unaware, is Katamari (Touch My Katamari). It should perhaps be noted that the game is actually somewhat obscure, and as such, there’s no telling what may be running through the mind of those in the audience or even the contestants.

What do you think? Should the question have been phrased differently? Or should it have perhaps been completely scrapped for another one?

Thanks, Kotaku.

    This actually happened over a year ago.
