Any awesome viral video worth its salt will warn dumb teenagers "Don't do this at home, you could die, stupid, and then you'd be, like, so mad." Finally, Capcom has broken the trend and begun to invite overzealous fans to emulate their favorite Street Fighter X Tekken fighters in a home video contest.
Aspiring dancers are encouraged to emulate moves from two quick clip movies put together for this contest, remixing a dance routine of moves from both Street Fighter and Tekken to show those judges just what a dancing martial artist looks like. The contest invites both individuals and troupes to work together for the best impersonations of their favorite fighters. Bonus points for extra hadokens, of course.
The best dance videos will be put together on a short list, which then gets sent to a group of Capcom representatives working with the One Motion dance crew to find the two king of fighters (see what I did there?) and pit them against each other live. The winner then gets their routine made into a professional movie for all the geeks on Youtube to swoon over for years to come!
Anyone looking to enter into the contest can send their entry to firstname.lastname@example.org. And anyone looking for the Tekken move video can find it after the jump. For the rest of us, pretending to be professional martial artists means Youtube will soon be swarmed with hilarious videos of failed dragon punches and teenagers jumping off rooftops towards horribly shattered bones. Keep a weather eye, kids.
Just kidding, we of course don't want anyone doing anything that might get them hurt. Please don't be stupid and enter this contest with a video of your little brother jumping off the second story roof while doing his best high kick. The medical bills will outweigh the dinner table story for years to come.
