Birdie can do some surprisingly cool yet impractical juggle combos with his can in V-Trigger 2

You'll never get the sound out of your head

Street Fighter is not a series that's best known for big juggle combos, and SF5 is no exception unless you want to count things like Urien's Aegis Reflector shenanigans — though there's actually quite a bit more than that too.

Norwegian pro Street Fighter player NVD|Veggey recently shared some interesting Birdie tech using his V-Trigger 2, Birdie Time, that is about as practical as your typical Desk combo yet still something that many probably overlooked.

Instead of getting red-hot spicy, Birdie uses his chains to better effect with the ability to pull opponents in and trip them up, but they can also make the food loving warrior's can bounce around.

Once hit along the ground by the chains, the can will begin to continuously jump its way across the stage which can actually juggle opponents that land on it and opens the door to a ton of new combo potential... that we'll likely never see in an actual match.

To pull this all off, Veggey throws down a can and immediately hits it with the chain while pulling Zangief in. The can is now bouncing behind the grappler as he is Crush Countered by Birdie's standing heavy kick before being launched by a Bull Horn.

After the juggling can hits, Birdie can then follow up with a number of his specials like another Bull Horn, Bull Head, a Hanging Chain command grab or even finish off with Critical Art. You can check out the possibly most fun thing about Birdie in Veggey's clip below.
