Here we see the Shuriken Sentai Ninninjyaa — fighters in lots of spandex and crazy helmets — trying to teach a guy who drives around in lots of nomex and crazy helmets something. What are these dudes trying to teach Formula One’s Daniel Ricciardo?

Who’s really the sensei of bizarre finger action, though? Is it the Shuriken Sentai Ninninjyaa, or is Ricciardo himself teaching them how to make a very Charlie’s Angels-style hand motion?


All I can say for sure is that I love it when Formula One goes to Japan. Here, we have the latest characters from the Super Sentai series that brought us the Power Rangers. I’m not entirely sure Ricciardo knows what to do with this.

What do you think is going on in this picture? Explain away in the comments below.
