‘Street Fighter’: Mike Tyson Edition (Video)

Mike Tyson Street Fighter

The internet is a hotbed of more and more mashup activity, and here’s a pretty inspired one.

It combines Mike Tyson‘s boxing footage with audio effects from Street Fighter, creating in one’s mind a pretty sweet imaginary licensing deal between Mike Tyson and Street Fighter—or perhaps between Street Fighter and Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!.

The video syncs up the sound effects specific to the Street Fighter character Balrog, which is an appropriate choice given the character’s DNA (in Japan he’s even known as Mike Bison, which is one of those puns that’s so funny it’s impossible not to laugh at it).  And this isn’t just a clumsy overlay of sounds.  The video really syncs up well with every punch and knockout, leading us to believe that this probably took quite a bit of time and effort on the part of the creator.

Anyway, you can watch the Mike Tyson/Street Fighter mashup video for yourself below. And tonight, in your dreams, you might actually get to play Mike Bison’s Punch-Out!! for yourself.

Here’s the video:
