Old and cheap paintings are made to be modified, and French artist Gauvain Manhattan has transformed six images he found at flea markets. He improved the art by making them pixelated and fabulous. The paintings are now masterpieces because they resemble classic games like Castlevania and Duck Hunt. In other words, they all leveled up.

Redditor Vogey took a few old-school Mike Tyson fight clips and added in some rather appropriate sound effects from the original Street Fighter video game. The result, coupled with Vogey changing Mike’s name to “Bison”, is pretty entertaining. Honestly, I wish I could use those Street Fighter sound effects for everything I do–making a sandwich would be downright epic with that theme music for sure.

Your standard auto insurance policy covers all sorts of problems, but Street Fighter damage is likely not on the list. This commercial for Turkish insurance company Anadolu Sigorta has Ryu kicking the snot out of some guy’s car. There is no way that’s going to buff out.

sesame street fighter

You never know where mash-up art will lead. DeviantArt user gavacho13 created an illustration pairing Sesame Street with Street Fighter, and now it’s a playable game. Thanks, internet! Game developer Cocoalasca took the idea and ran with it and recently made Sesame Street Fighter available.

The HTML5 game pits character combinations against each other. For example, Bert and Ryu are merged into one creature. You fight by being the first to type in a series of words. The concept is laugh out loud funny to me, and the game is kind of addictive.

Now, go forth and play Sesame Street Fighter!

Taylor Swift gave a head-thrashing performance at this year’s Grammys that was… odd. This video explains the whole problem. She apparently found herself in the middle of a Street Fighter battle, and despite repeated kicks to the face, she never stopped playing. That right there is a professional, folks.
