Drake's 'Way 2 Sexy' music video has already been used to create a Street Fighter win screen meme and it's pure gold

Drake's new album "Certified Lover Boy" was released last Friday after being delayed for several months. With the new batch of music comes a music video for one of the tracks entitled "Way 2 Sexy," which features fellow artists Future and Young Thug in different scenes that take inspiration from other videos and films such as Rambo and an 80s workout tape.

Why the hell are we talking about this on a fighting game news website, you ask? Well, one crafty internet user took a couple of quick clips from the new video and made it into a Street Fighter win screen animation, and... it's pretty great.

Twitter user Mattatarii cut a few of the clips together with some slow-mo editing to create a mock Street Fighter 4 victory cinematic. Focusing on the scene where Drake and company live out a Boyz II Men-style music video, this meme adds the SF4 win music, score, and even a win quote to really bring it to life.

Kawhi Leonard, professional NBA player, joins Drake in the video to do a little bit of choreographed dancing. The victory screen uses Leonard and Drake and almost reminds me of a Yun and Yang type of deal as both are featured together.

The "You Win!" message pops up as Leonard looks a little perplexed by the whole ordeal. We then see a fading transition into Drake staring at the camera and letting sand slip from his fingers, which is totally something we'd see from a fighting game character being cocky after they've won the match.

This meme's best bit, though, is the final scene where the two strike a pose, the screen freezes, and the result information and win quote pop up.

"Unless you intend to lose, you should keep the dancing to a minimum, sir," reads the duo's victory quote.

The new Drake music video is creative and pretty funny, but the Street Fighter 4 meme is much funnier and just works too well โ€” especially for an old Street Fighter 4 head like me.
