TEACH ME HOW: Man Performs Real-Life Street Fighter Hadoukens To Blow Out A Line Of Candles

candle-punching.jpg

This is a video of a guy using a series of air-punches to blow out a line of candles. It's probably not what you imagined when you read 'hadouken' in the title, and that's 100% my bad. To be fair though, hadouken literally means "wave motion fist", so they kind of are hadoukens, just not the same style as in the video games. But enough trying to justify the misleading title -- just watch the video, it's kind of cool. Skip to 1:15 for the candle extinguishing action though and BE THANKFUL I JUST SAVED A MINUTE OF YOUR LIFE. Use it wisely. "Cat videos?" The wisest.

Hit the jump for the kind of worthwhile video.

Thanks to Marcorony, who once jump-kicked a bonfire out.

    FAKE FAKE FAKE.....

    Water soaked wicks, nothing more. Try it yourself. Just put a drop of water on the wick and let it soak down into it. Dry the top part of the wick and light it. After a few minutes, the wax can't be drawn up the wick and the flame goes out. If you do it with the same amount of water to multiple candles, they will all go out at the same time.

    He's just blowing them out with his mouth but he's just blowing without moving his lips a guy called James Hydrick used to do it and claim to be telekinetic

  • I wanted a hadouken.... :/

  • Whatevs, spazz. Now make yourself useful and cool off my pizza.

  • RareAwesomeman

    somehow doesn't look like an effective fighting move

  • Tim Buchanan

    Wake me up when he can LIGHT the candles.

  • Proctor

    The real question is not how does he blow out the candles but WTF is the guy from Flash Forward doing presenting Chinese news?

  • cabbo

    I'm guessing it's the same trick as done by that guy that turned over pages in a book. Whatever his name was. He was blowing.

  • Stephen Casto

    Unlike your mom, blowing only make a fire hotter... "Fan a fire" mean anything to ya?

  • cabbo

    Didn't you ever have a birthday cake with candles when you were young?

    Also, that 'mom' thing made no sense. Here's a better one; your mom is clearly a retarded whore, because there's no way a man brought up in a normal household without constant sexual tension and confusion could be as twisted and backward as you. In fact, I'm sure now that you didn't have birthday cakes. I'm sure your mom forgot your birthday every year. There was that one when she wore that frilly little dress and you thought she remembered, but it turned out she was expecting the TV guy over.

  • Stephen Casto

    Blowing hard (like your mom does) will put a candle flame. BUT, he is not doing that (even if he WAS blowing). Also, the page turning trick was not with blowing, it was starch paper with a heated plate in it, moron.

    This trick is an OLD trick, where water is introduced to the wick, so when the flame gets to the wet spot (like all men with your mom) the flame goes out since the wax cannot be drawn into the wick anymore....DOH...

  • cabbo

    I should explain 'conjecture as fact' - you do not know that he is soaking the wicks. It is a reasonable assumption, an I'm pretty convinced by it, but saying that it is definitely the way it is done here is incorrect.

    Learn the basics of cheap fraud before positing conjecture as fact.

  • Stephen Casto

    That's not what HE said on his prison interview last month, LOL... Right back at ya!

  • cabbo

    Provide a link, or I won't believe you, because I can't find any reference connecting James Hydrick to a heated plate, or an interview conducted any time in the last nine years, or even starch paper with a psychic hoax. Nor can I connect 'soaked wick' to any reference of prison, if that's what you were talking about.
