It's a Skull for the early teens

Good morning, RPS.

Thanks Casey Jamieson. Thanks.

    Blimey, expected a fun clip and got TF2 euro-techno.

  2. the army of none says:

    I’m just going to bed, you brits, over there across the pond, in the future…

  3. jon_hill987 says:

    As Bill Bailey pointed out; that lyric may sound profound but actually makes no more sense than “I’ve got Ham but I’m not a Hamster”.

  4. negativedge says:

    what the fuck this is awful. I blame europe

    • Wulf says:

      The United Kingdom is found within Europe, and this site is run by British people, limeys if you prefer the term, but specifically: Europeans. Not to mention that the majority of readers are likely British too, drawn here by the British sense of humour found within the writing (I never did get Destructoid or Kotaku, they’re mostly not at all funny to me, but RPS is frequently so).

      Soooo… you do realise that, right? >.> WELCOME TO EUROPE!

    • TeeJay says:

      You are technically correct but the term “europe” is often used in the UK as shorthand to denote “mainland europe / the rest of europe”. It can also mean “the EU / European Commission / Brussels / Eurozone”. It doesn’t technically make any sense, but you can usually tell what people mean from the context.

      If a Brits hears an American talk about “Europe” and “Europeans”, depending on what is being discussed they might or might not take it as applying to them (for example “Europe doesn’t want to fight in Afghanistan” or “PC game are more expensive in Europe” etc).

    • hexapodium says:

      I blame Europe, the 80s glam metal band. Whilst we Europeans are responsible for many things considered bad by other nationalities (small cars, industrial design, IKEA, Swiss neutrality), I don’t think we can take blame for Eurodance and techno in quite the same way.

    • StenL says:

      Techno is actually a thoroughly American invention, seeing as it was born in Detroit.

    • bookwormat says:

      Us Europeans cannot be taken responsible for cheap techno music. We are still busy apologizing for France Gall.

    • boldoran says:

      According to alexa the majority of traffic on RPS comes from the US.

  5. Bozzley says:

    That needs a decent video.

    Actually, that needs an AWESOME video.

  6. wazups2x says:

    Once is enough for me.

  7. Larington says:

    Umm, I… What?

  8. 1nightstand says:

    Wtf, Americans sucks. This is awesome.

  9. DazzeL says:

    And I thought these euro-pop trance remixes were made especially for DotA…..

  10. Dexemplu says:

    HOLY UNGODLY COCK

  11. billyboob says:

    Techno ruins everything. Poor Soldier

    • Casimir's Blake says:

      Ignorant cretins that are not aware what “techno” really is, ruin everything.

      (The music in the video is much closer to euphoric trance, if anything.)

    • mandrill says:

      I thought it was more of a happy hardcore number myself

    • drewski says:

      In non-dance music speak, all dance music is handily labelled “techno”. As this is clearly dance music, it fits the bill for those who aren’t fans of the genre. Don’t be a music snob.

      It’s nice, whether it’s euphoric trance or happy hardcore. Sounds more like trance to me, though.

    • Redd says:

      It’s not Happy Hardcore without piano and chipmunk vocals. Trust me, I used to live with someone who’d play it 24/7. I still have nightmares.

  12. Drexer says:

    Thank you, I needed that to wake up properly.

  13. Neuromante says:

    That. And I’m spanish (Wich means, european). And I’m ashamed.

  14. Davie says:

    Yes.
    This needs a spectacular music video. Now.

  15. Rosti says:

    “Fire! FIRE!” is just perfect. Thank you Gillen. Thillen.

  16. Jonas says:

    That ending is perfect. Just perfect.

    (PS. I always fail the first CAPTCHA, and succeed on the second. Always. It has to be a bug.)

  17. Rick says:

    The ending had me laughing,

  18. BooleanBob says:

    You are running, I am runninger!

  19. bildo says:

    TF2 on ecstacy…hrm

  20. Adam Bloom says:

    I would probably dislike this if I didn’t love eurodance so much.

  21. Vadermath says:

    Holy crap!

  22. Daniel Klein says:

    You are weak! You are bleeders! You run fast! I run faster!

    *dances*

  23. HexagonalBolts says:

    oh europe… where did it all go wrong?

  24. Kirrus says:

    Awesome. Just… awesome :D

  25. MuscleHorse says:

    Let this be the one and only time that RPS quotes The Killers.

    With ex-Plan B staff in it’s ranks you’d think it’d know better.

    And looking up before posting it is the ex-Plan B staffer that’s posted this. Oh dear.

  26. The Pink Ninja says:

    Dreadful Euro-Crap

    Erectin a Dispenser is still The King

  27. ZeroByte says:

    Poor Soldier, his music career has gone down the crapper. I quite liked his collaboration with the Spy though in Cap My Point

  28. the wiseass says:

    This is bad.

  29. M says:

    Good morning Charlie.

  30. Ghiest says:

    Should have based it mroe on scott brown rather than Tiesto it might had made more sense. Voice does really not go with the tune (as bad as the tune sounds).

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YL3OC4S_2Q4 or something like it :P

  31. gildron says:

    Well, I wasn’t expecting to actually be posted.

    But hey, I guess I’m not the only person with a soft spot of horrible techno stuff.

    Except this is awesome. (Soft spot talking.)

    • gildron says:

      It was then that I spell checked my post and realized that I had the phrase “soft spot of”…. How embarrassing. I’m pretending I went back and edited it by posting this.

  32. Chucrute says:

    I guess that means you are half human, half robot

  33. Tzarkahn says:

    SADFACE :(

  34. Wulf says:

    HAPPY VIRIDIAN FACE! :D

  35. mrrobsa says:

    Not able to find it myself, but someone made me grin when they played a version of Reel 2 Real’s ‘I Like to Move it’, spliced with engie quotes about ‘Move that gear up!’ in a TF2 server recently.

  36. Tom Davidson says:

    This is not mere hyperbole, either. There is no situation that cannot be made worse with the application of techno.

  37. Anthony says:

    As an Australian, it should be mentioned that you appear to have posted this during our party hours.

    For this I thank you.

    Also, Spy!

  38. Calabi says:

    That is probably very good, I liked it.

  39. jameskond says:

    It’s the new Dota song! I’m outta here >.>

  40. Andy says:

    Well I can’t hear this while at work, but I’m still guessing it’s not as good as:

    I’m your medic
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CH4D7Uod4Cg
    or
    Be A Sniper
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8j-z3QFLezE

  41. Cooper says:

    TF2 + Euro-trance for breakfast = a very odd way to start the day.

    I now have a really odd urge to find a copy of that Smurf’s dance-pop-covers-album…

  42. Nerd Rage says:

    You know I normally don’t go for this sort of thing, but somehow that was hugely entertaining. I don’t think I’ll want to listen to it again though, once is likely enough.

  43. Mr Bismarck says:

    My favourite dance song is the one that went “Down, down, d-down, get get down, down, down, d-down, get get down, down, down, d-down, get get down, down, down, d-down, get get down, down, down, d-down, get get down, down, down, d-down, get get down, down, down, down, d-down, get get down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down.

    Anyone know what that one was called?

  44. Camilo says:

    This is epic.

  45. elyscape says:

    YOU RUN FAST
    I RUN FASTER
    YOU ARE RUNNING
    I AM RUNNINGER

  46. AWOL says:

    Is this what you’re referring to?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dh0iEkDEkU

  47. Poltergeist says:

    I loved it

  48. Devan says:

    Well done, whoever made this.
