There are fan videos, and there are fan videos. And then there's "The Ballad of Mike Haggar."

Posted by YouTube user Hortyort (whose real name is Glorbus Finn), the video shares an epic poem recounting the journey of Final Fight's ass-kicking mayor as he fights his way to the end of the the game and… well, and beyond.

Like, way beyond.

I can't even pick my favorite part of this. Finn's pitch-perfect vocal performance, the chanting 300-ish soundtrack, or the fact that the story takes a trip to Valhalla and features what has to be the most epic outer-space pile-drive in the history of streaming video.

Until a man stood tall and pledged
to pry away the dagger's edge;
'twas truly apt the city's prayer
be answered by its very mayor.

Mike Haggar, we salute you.
