Street Fighter Origins – John Choi and Sandstorm

LWJC reader Jimmy T. shot an email over to me over the weekend that contained this video — yes, this is the legendary trailer that Ponder created for the B5 Tournament nearly a decade ago, but more importantly (and hilariously), it’s the spark that started the hot and steamy relationship between John Choi and Sandstorm. Check out this historical recap:

(4:03:58 PM) Me: He sent this: “http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ki1la6cHDok&feature=related
-Jimmy T ”
(4:04:02 PM) Me: “see if John Choi remembers this”
(4:06:57 PM) John Choi: damn
(4:07:00 PM) John Choi: that is the reason
(4:07:01 PM) John Choi: for my sandstorm
(4:07:04 PM) John Choi: its homage to that trailer
(4:07:08 PM) John Choi: cause that trailer was the shits back then
(4:07:22 PM) John Choi: its because of that trailer made by ponder
(4:07:32 PM) John Choi: that i decided to do sandstorm as intro music 1 year
(4:07:35 PM) John Choi: and it stuck since
(4:08:37 PM) Me: history in the making.
(4:13:07 PM) John Choi: and then
(4:13:11 PM) John Choi: one of my fave fighters

There you have it folks.

I Think We Found John’s New Intro Music

AWWWWW shit, I think we just got a real match!!! Okay, the shit makes absolutely no sense whatsoever, but it’s still fucking SANDSTORM!!!!

One thing I learned in basic fucking arithmetic in the 4th grade: Anything + Sandstorm = WIN!!!

Thanks to Kara “Karaface” Leung for posting this on John’s Facebook.

John Choi + Sandstorm, A True Love Story

Now, I’m no acclaimed movie director, but I do find my first piece in my documentary series on John Choi a true hit. All jokes aside, this dude seriously loves Sandstorm (it’s his Evo entry music), women (as exhibited by his collection of durex extra sensitive condoms), and glowsticks. I fucking told you so!

And wait til you see his booze collection. That’s how he gets ’em.

P.S. – Work From Home days are the shit. I seriously wouldn’t be surprised if John installs some locks on his doors tonight.

BONUS ROUND: John Choi + Sandstorm caught fooling around.
