What happens when Marshmello in Ryu gear and Wengie dressed as Cammy come together to play Street Fighter 5? It may just make you 'happier'

I wonder if he'd play Dee Jay in Street Fighter 4

In an online / connected ecosystem where crossovers between different types of media are becoming more common place, fighting games more often times get a shot at the mainstream spotlight that normally shines past it.

The worlds of music and wrestling have been especially kind to the Street Fighter series with artists like Lupe Fiasco taking on the legendary CYG|Daigo Umehara in Street Fighter 5 and the multiple exhibition matches between wrestling superstars Kenny Omega and Xavier Woods... though fans may have a differing opinion on Nicki Minaj's Chun-Li single.

Billboard topping DJ / producer Marshmello, whose song "Happier" currently sits at number three of the hot 100, runs a YouTube channel where he posts video game and cooking content with special guests while remaining silent in his signature mask / helmet.

Street Fighter 5 is the subject of Marshmello's latest video this week where he takes on Australian YouTuber Wengie, who is most well-known for her fashion tips and craft experiments.

The American Music Awards winning DJ actually managed to find a red bandanna big enough to cover his cylindrical head to complete his Ryu-themed outfit while Wengie dressed as the killer bee Cammy for their own laid back exhibition match.

This video appears to be the first time either of them have ever touched Street Fighter 5, but Wengie still looks like she knows her way around the series with her general knowledge and know-how to perform different specials and EX moves. Those looking to shake things up with something other than professional players and lab monsters should check out the light-hearted video after the jump.
