Ryu Lends a Hand in a Turkish Insurance Commercial
Looks like famed Street Fighter Ryu is appearing in a commercials for a Turkish insurance company these days. Being a World Warrior probably doesn’t help pay the rent all that much.
The commercial is for Anadolu Sigorta, a company in Turkey that offers health, accident and travel insurance. In the video, a man is being interviewed next to his car when suddenly, Ryu comes in from the right and starts hammering at the vehicle. It’s almost as if he thought he was in the middle of a bonus round and had to destroy the car.
The attention to detail in the commercial is pretty impressive, since the people in the background seem like sprites and have the same looped animation. Even the car’s dismantling mirrors that of the cars in the classic arcade fighter. You have to give Anadolu Sigorta props for staying true to the source material.
