Jessica Alba 'Street Fighter' Moves: Star Tries Her Hand At 'Hadouken-ing' On Instagram [PHOTOS]

Inspired by Japanese school girls posting pictures of themselves doing “Street Fighter” and “Dragon Ball Z” moves, Jessica Alba has been posting photos on Instagram that replicate the effect those moves would have and look like in the video game and anime cartoon. The phenomenon gained the name “Hadouken-ing,” but fans of the series “Dragon Ball Z” have also dubbed the photos “Kamehameha-ing.”
