Yes, you read that headline correctly. In a brief comedy sketch on the Pete Holmes Show, a late-night talk-show that airs on TBS, none other than Street Fighter's wandering warrior, Ryu, made an appearance.

In order to compete in the next world tournament, and seek revenge on Sagat, Ryu must provide a transcript of everything he says during battle. Ryu begins with his classic special moves: "Hadouken, Shoryuken," but things get a bit difficult when the Hurricane Kick comes up...

During this clip, you may spot a familiar face underneath the cosplay. That's right, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, most famously know for playing Zack Morris on the late 80s television series Saved by the Bell, is Ryu. Zack Morris is Ryu. Did you ever think you'd hear that in your lifetime?

We've got some screen caps below of Gosselaar in the Ryu get-up, and hit the jump to check out the video clip.
