For kids of a certain generation, the joystick combinations for Street Fighter II are hard-wired into memory. It’s an iconic game, with instantly familiar characters and special moves. 

That’s what makes this real-life reenactment by a Japanese game show so incredibly funny. It hits all the right nostalgia notes while capturing the absurdity of the game—especially the sound effects. You’ll never see E. Honda’s belly-press move the same way again.
