Art Juice: SOPA Hibiki

[Every week (until I get bored), Art Juice takes a recent videogame story and provides an unremittingly artistic slant, telling us a little something about ourselves in the process … whether we want to know the truth or not!]

This week’s Art Juice is a devastating blow to the very foundations of Capcom’s SOPA support. Everybody knows that Capcom’s Dan Hibiki is ostensibly a copypasta of SNK’s highly original character, Ryo Sakazaki.

In this stark portrayal, Dan plays the role of our free Internet, and all the incidental property theft it might contain. Under SOPA, he has been hanged by the neck until dead, while his lifeless corpse is berated eternally by Judge Gloomjuice, the demonic representation of twisted American justice.

God damn, this is great stuff that I do.
