This weekend, Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li opens in movie theaters. This calls for a Japanese pop group to dress up like Chun-Li!
Ten members of 48 member idol group AKB48 showed up at a Tokyo press event today dressed up in Chun-Li garb and wearing shiny black tights.
For those keeping score: The ten AKB48 singers in attendance were Minami Takahashi, Amina Satoh, Minami Minegishi, Yukari Satoh, Natsuki Sato, Tomomi Kasai, Ayaka Umeda, Megumi Ohori, Sayaka Akimoto and Natsumi Matsubara.
The girls posed for pictures and did an original dance created just for this Street Fighter movie press event. "We practiced an hour before the press event," Umeda told reporters.
AKB48 went on to talk about their experience with the Street Fighter movie, while members of the Japanese press went on to think how much better watching this press conference was than the actual film.
