Classic Sega Streets of Rage Ad

One of the games that was never out of reach in my Genesis days was “Streets of Rage”. This game ad begins with a delicious socks and belts pun, but what is most striking (see what I did there) is the beatdown that Axel is getting in the pictures in this ad. You figure at some point he would get a lucky shot in on Blaze, but time and again she looks to have the upper hand. I was never a big fan of his, so I say, “Serves him right, Adam rules!”
