Ninja Work It. Old meme NOW IN 3D! Made with Blender and Unreal Engine 4

There was an old meme a decade ago called Karateka Dance or Ninja Work(s) It. An animated gif with the ninja from the game Karateka dancing like MC Hammer to, I believe originally, the song “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” by Daft Punk.

I rotoscoped the frames in 3D with Blender, animated them in UE4 and made this video.

I did this to test an idea for an ultraviolent retro shooter with
dismemberment mechanics.

And it can be done…

I guess it can be useful for other stuff too… 🤣
