Have you ever played Final Fight? I haven’t, which I put down to my late entry into the gaming world and thus never having owned a NES or SNES – hell, my first proper home console was the original PlayStation. Nevertheless, I am familiar with Final Fight’s main character, one Mike Haggar.
You may not know Mike Haggar, but you should – he’s the mayor or a city, but when a gang takes over and kidnaps his daughter, you learn that he is also a former-wrestler. And now he’s hell-bent on claiming back his daughter and the city he loves and protects. This man is awesome, and the world would be a better place if our mayors were that cool and righteous and generally fantastic.
Someone decided to take it upon themselves to create the following video in tribute to Mike Haggar, and even if you don’t know who he is, you should watch regardless. You will know Mike Haggar. And you will love him.
