The Nanigans’ Hadouken Project

Written by: Jennie White, Marketing Associate

A few weeks ago the Nanigans team discovered the latest trend sweeping the Internet, Hadouken, a type of attack from the Japanese Game, “Street Fighter”, which means “wave motion fist” or “surge fist” in Japanese. Since we love games and action (and missed the boat on the Harlem Shake movement), we decided to do our own versions of Hadouken.

We took this project very seriously, which is one of the reasons why it took a little while for a finished project. There were injuries, unexpected martial arts moves, and some serious air, but overall we’re impressed with the results. So, without further ado, we bring you the Nanigans Hadouken Project:


As mentioned before, we took the Nanigans Hadouken Project very seriously; Our photographer, Senior Campaign Manager, Pavan Patidar, (center) took over 40 photos.

Sandy Ground Attack

We started off with what we like to call “ground attacks”; timing was our biggest challenge, even more of a challenge than the jump itself.

E$M Attacks

Our Training & Enrichment Team Lead, Erik Mansur, and Client Services Manager, Suzanne Wong, went one-to-one for this shot.


Our CTO, Claude Denton, jumped into the action and showed us an impressive jump!

Our CEO, Ric Calvillo, followed suit and after a couple of practice rounds we got this action pose.

But after all the hard work, our Campaign Managers, Sandy de Arango (right) and Janina Tantoco (center), and Client Services Manager, Suzanne Wang (left), turned this one out and we couldn’t be prouder of them.

Our skills were put to the test, so was our balance, and our team work, but after looking at the pictures above we were pleased with the results. And are we all in agreement now that Hadouken is harder than the Harlem Shake?
