Everybody’s favorite Brazilian Street Fighter decided to follow me along on my trip, ya know, just to make sure I had back up. Blanka was posing for his life all over the place. I have never hung out with such a camera hogging vinyl toy.
Blanka, for those who do not know, is a video game character created by Capcom for the classic Street Fighter game in 1987. Blanka makes a cameo appearance in Disney’s Wreck it Ralph.
I know he looks grumpy in this picture, but Blanka loved Ipanema beach.
