Grand Nationals: Portal 2 Video Winners

Well, looky-here. Valve's put out the winners for its Portal 2/The National make-a-video contest - which is a bit of a relief, as people kept mailing us with their videos like we had some sort of judiciary power. We don't! We only have that over the life and/or death of every sentient being on the planet. We cannot, repeat cannot, decide the winners of other people's competitions.

So, here are the two victors, which I shall refer to as Sad Puppet and Cut-Up Lab Rat. Warning: watching them will require you to listen to a maudlin piano song that may affect your mood for the worse.

Placing 1st is C.F.Meister, with his saga of an unhappy sock:

That puppet sure is sad.

Placing 1.00000000001th is MikeMov 89, with the animated tale of Doug Rattman and his unhealthy Chell fixation:

Well done to both. You've probably won some kind of prize from Valve.

Oh, and I did a round-up of some of the other entries back here, if you're interested.

(I like the runner-up better).
