How can we not post this?
Merry Thankmas, Gametrailers
Did they get a choir to sing it, or is it magical digital music? I’m too inept to know. What matters is that they bothered.
christmas, Portal, Valve.

It would be hard to overstate my satisfaction at this video.

That did just make my day. Christy! I hate flu.

They’ll just keep on trying until they run out of cake.

You should watch it on valves Aperturescience.com and watch it 3 times, something will have changed in the movie.

I hadn’t noticed the first few times I’d been linked to that, but the decorations on the tree are the TF2 characters in taunt poses. Awesome.

Can someone confirm that Zygorator isn’t yanking everyones chain? I’ve watched the bloody thing ten times in a row and can’t find anything that changes.
That could of course just be me being blind so you don’t need to tell me what changes – as we lack spoiler tags, just that something changes.
23/12/2007 at 14:57
Ah! just checked again, and it seems to happen randomly.
23/12/2007 at 14:59
didn’t find any changes

Once again we get awesome fan service from Valve that somehow TOTALLY avoids being ass-kissy. Gods among men.

well, it somehow didnt work in my browser (just stopped looping after ca 20 times), but you are supposed to see this:
I was totally expecting G-man, though…
23/12/2007 at 15:37
Zygorator: it’s random, 1 chance in 15 of happening.
23/12/2007 at 16:14
Adorable on so many levels, from the Santa sign, to the gnome, to, well, everything really.
23/12/2007 at 16:29
Valve is great!

I literally JUST finished Portal (Blasphemy, I know, but I just borrowed the Orange Box off a friend… I’m poor.)
Now I understand everything you were all saying!
That … song!
Must… fight … urge … to replay!
So many other games!

Yeah.. ugh. Kind of them, but pretty effortless.
24/12/2007 at 00:30
I find that pretty neat, and considering what with everyone whining about everything in TF2 and who knows what else, I appreciate their effort for the small gesture.
24/12/2007 at 12:29
Love the gnome. Fly, my pretty one!

I was looking for the TF2 content in the scene, because I saw one of the stockings had its logo.
I then realized the characters were all the ornaments on the tree.

Why are there [Supply] crates in this portal video unless this is some kind of non-time paradox clue?
26/12/2007 at 06:00
I -love- the turret tucked behind the crates in the darkness watching over bait… the cake is a lie!

Most overrated shit. Evar.

Time to SHOVE EVERYBODY
Written by the Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal Comics chap
Wandering around an alien city
What I Play When I'm Not Well
The journey, not the destination
Simulation & wargame blather
The year of the PC monitor...
Don't push me, push a lane pusher
No, the FPS
This is a sneaking sandbox
Operant conditioning chamber incarnate
So I just click this and... ah
Loving the alien
Like writing... but it moves
