The meme’s spark was kindled in Japan when schoolgirls started posting pictures of themselves throwing balls of lightning at each other, Street Fighter-style. And that’s all there is to it. Imgur user grimlockt then kindly pointed it out to the rest of us so we could all benefit from a new photo trend.
And remember, you’re never too young to hadouken.
Ready, set, everyone hadouken! (But remember to be safe, lightning can sting).
