The first 26 minutes is a group talk. Then theres a rundown of highlights from different challenges/games and punishments including a speed slapping game, trying to stop a falling basin as close to their head as possible, shooting a high-powered jet of water into their mouth etc. Then at about 49 minutes in is a rundown of skits/segments from past shows. This includes at Number 4 the "Waking up the Cast" segment previously found floating around Youtube and kindly SUBBED by Zurui here: ... -game.html

Thanks to Giffan, here is a description of one of the talks:
At 16:15 Matsumoto is asked who besides Hamada would he choose as a comedy partner, and his answer was Yamasaki. Past that, Matsumoto chooses the rest in order. He calls Kimura "scary" and they start imitating him. I think he also says it's hard to imagine Itao as his tsukkomi.
This is amazing! Thanks alot :)
