It turns out mutants aren’t the only people getting chronicled today. Street Fighter II‘s Zangief has a documentary following the twilght of his post-SFII career, as this brutal expose of one of the Russian wrestler’s lonely New Year’s Eves clearly shows. There are three others in the series, but if you liked this one (and can stand the high-profile man-boobs), I’d recommend just skipping to this one, which features the teen Zangief and possibly the greatest line ever spoken in human history: “Police Academy IV, take Zangief away.” Thanks to Kevin F. for the tip.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
