If you like Streets of Rage and have 23 minutes to spare, grab some popcorn and make yourself comfortable. Some ambitious fans have brought the series to life with the magic of street fighting, fireworks and YouTube.

The video follows Axel Stone as he swaggers through the streets, punishing any thugs that dare to threaten him and kicking over traffic cones to reveal delicious chicken. Watch out for some two player action towards the end, too.
