Ha! I have to say I didn't see that one coming.

Now I want to play TF2 - anyone up for a game?

YEZ. I saw this a few hours ago and cracked up far more than expected. Valve needs to hire these guys yesterday.

Spy would never behave that way, he has no compassion. Also: KABOOM!

Shaggy dog stories are the best stories.

Sharp. The timing is unusally good for an Internet cartoon, and unusually good in general. Tight-but-loose. Good sight gags too. Yes sir, I like it. Hats off. The future of animation just got a little brighter.

Yeah, I'm with krilli. Much better than I thought it would/could be. Worth it for the final joke. The Valve (and other games for that matter) inside references were ace as well.

The witch from L4D as a bridesmaid just cracked me up for some reason. In fact, all the little homages to other Valve games are very well done. I love this video, it's awesome.

I didn't get all the game references, but the thing was funny on its own. Love that John K style.

Was pretty good. I did think the baby was going to be a reference to the "missing" 10th class, but what they did worked too.

Now when Meet The Pyro comes out, that is something I am looking forward to.

I like that TF2 is funnier, and inspires funnier material, than any scripted game that I've seen in a long time.

This was great!

that's great.

Wonderful.

I had to uninstall Steam because TFC was ruining my life. I never liked TF2 at all. The respawn delay was torture.

If you don't like the respawn delay, then don't die so much.

i'm hesitant to mention this, but the respawn delay is configurable by server.

I love the inclusion of the Gentlemen (WARNING: Encyclopedia Dramatica link) meme.

Even through it completely ruins the balance of the game, there are plenty of insta-spawn servers out there if that's your thing.

This was really great. I expected something funny, very TF2, but it really exceeded my expectations. And all the references weren't out of place either.

He got that spy to look just like Mr. Horse in some of those frames. Great job!

I've wanted to play Team Fortress 2 ever since I saw this video.
Now it's mandatory.
