Making an adhesive bandage stay on longer

This video clip from a Japanese TV show demonstrates how to make an ordinary adhesive bandage (Band Aid) stay on longer, especially when applied to a finger.

The audio is in Japanese, but the step-by-step visuals are fairly self-explanatory. The reason that this trick is effective is that the adhesive strips form a tighter seal around the finger, keeping out the water that would ordinarily seep in and weaken the adhesive.
