Does this make you want Street Fighter IV?

Here's the new artwork and a screen for Street Fighter IV's latest newcomer, Rufus. Is this the type of character that you think represents the franchise well? Out of all the possible characters, was a big fat redneck with a bucket of popcorn truly necessary? You tell me, personally i think this was a complete waste of creative talent.

I'll admit it though, while the idea of an obese slob coming into the Street Fighter world bothers me, it cannot be denied how great this game looks graphically. It's pretty stunning for what is essentially a 2D experience. And I can imagine that levels that are as vividly lit as this must look even more stunning in motion.
