Jimmy Fallon sets record for fastest 20 Hadoukens performed by Ryu impersonators

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • June 24, 2013 at 9:02 a.m. PDT
In honor of video game week over on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy tries his hand at setting a couple of world records with the assistance of the guys from RecordSetter. RecordSetter is a website in which anyone can come up with their own world record and send in footage as proof of completion.

The first record Fallon sets consists of having numerous Ryu impersonators perform 20 Hadoukens as fast as possible. The other record has one of the members from the Roots blowing into as many NES game cartridges as he can in 20 seconds.

It goes without saying that this clip is fairly silly in the typical Jimmy Fallon style, however, it's pretty awesome to see Street Fighter referenced on national television.

Tip sent in by Aluppoj.

Noooooo! Blowing into your cartridge does nothing to make them work, if anything it damages them!

Girl from 1:30 sounds like Dexter. Good ol 90's cartoons. Thanks to Jimmy Fallon, EVO's traditional Shoryuken will be replaced by 5,000 Hadokens.

Ryu's Hadoukens don't expire, they keep going until they hit something!

All those poor audience members. D:

bunny said on June 24, 2013 at 11:16 a.m.

guess the adds dont fup your system like they do mine ... good for you now kindly stfu im sick of my system freezing because of adds. 50/50 chance of freezing if adds aren't blocked isn't cool.

#32
xBMxSage said on June 24, 2013 at 11:17 a.m.

@5 - Mine would probably be people who say "Raiyu" instead of "Reeyu".

Screw the record. What were the NES games? There are some good resell money on that table.

G_H_0_S_T_728 said on June 24, 2013 at 11:49 a.m.

@32 ...what? if your system sucks use adblock anyway instead of bitching about a news post and the ads that keep this site alive douche

None of them have ever seen a fight.

ryuhayabusa13 said on June 24, 2013 at 1:20 p.m.

Sigh... Rye-oo Why can't some people ever learn to pronounce the name. Ryu might as well be called Gerardo or Pablo.

maybe There will be slightly better chance to get his name right,

#46
RambroCampAlot said on June 24, 2013 at 1:35 p.m.

that's nothing, i wanna see them do spinning bird kicks then we're talking

#47
Deyrax said on June 24, 2013 at 1:44 p.m.

It's not rye-oo, its Ryu, yu like in youtube so to pronounce it right add r and leave tube, that way you pronounce it correctly. Do you hear a f*cking shoRYEOOken or shoreeyuken", no you hear "shoRYUken", how can people be that dumb, just watch SFxT intro trailer where he and Ken fights Nina and Kazuya and listen when Ken calls Ryu, that's how you pronounce it, not the fcking "reeyu" or "rye-ooo".

According to RecordSetter, I hold the world record for blowing the most farts while an illegal alien I picked up from Home Depot chokes me while I touch myself.

Gameplan said on June 24, 2013 at 1:58 p.m.

Lol, I thought they were going to do the Hadoukens in-game.

Silly indeed, but still amusing. I don't mind this kind of posts at all. At worst you can always skip it if you don't like it.

what's the point of blowing into those cartridges to make them work... if you throw them on the ground like that ?

#52

@Malda

It's spelled Conan.

And I thought this was good for a quick Street Fighter related laugh.

Guys, not every piece of news has to be Earth shatteringly serious. Lighten up and crack a smile.

(Or heaven forbid you simply scroll past the article.)
