Pulling off a shimmy in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition is a powerful thing. Not only do you open your opponent up for a big punish, but you also send them a message that lets them know that you're in their head.

As such, NVD|Phenom uploaded a clip that really showcased him unraveling his opponent by using backdashes to shimmy his opponent. This happened three times in a row.

The clip starts with the opponent, using Dan, in the corner. Being that there was plenty of space between them, Phenom opted to forward dash to get closer.

This prompted the Dan player to tech the throw. However, Phenom was already backdashing by the time Dan was able to extend his arm for a throw. "Darn!"

Following this, Phenom then proceeded to repeat this scene an additional two times. All things considered, the Dan player's ability to react to Phenom's forward dashes were on point.

Upon deciding to finally punish his opponent, Phenom let out a maniacal laughter at what just happened. Check it out in the clip below:
