Desk turned Dan's Street Fighter 5 infinite combo into a music video and it's the coolest thing you're going to see today

When we see Desk's awe-inspiring combo videos, the primary creative focus is usually on the combos first and music second... but that's not exactly the case this time around.

Having discovered an infinite combo for newcomer Dan Hibiki, the very musically-minded Desk has imagined something of a music video utilizing Dan's theme song and based around the beat of the repetitive infinite. The result is a ton of fun.

There are three tools that go into this: an arcade stick, a keyboard, and a Midi Fighter. The latter of those is a DJ tool that features arcade stick buttons mapped to various tunes and sounds.

Spliced together with footage of Dan going to town on opponents with his SF5 infinite, some select action moments in both is Street Fighter 4 and 5 appearances, and visuals of Desk's legendary hands doing all the hard work (including doing some extra percussion fills between button inputs on his stick) make for a very entertaining watch.

It's interesting that after Desk posted the potential of this infinite combos, (just hours after Dan was released) many in the community took to the training room to imitate it. The sequence is actually reasonably difficult as it requires strict spacing and timing on top of pristine execution.

That all established, many were happy to be able to simply say they'd pulled off a few loops of the never ending combo. Here we have Desk not only being able to execute the difficult sequence, he's now mastered it so thoroughly that he's been able to develop an entire musical presentation around it.
