    Totally brilliant. Concept, timing, tone, execution. Flawless. Best thing I’ve seen in ages.

    Bravo Gentleman, I salute you!

    I thought he did a great job, even if the free falling thing is made to look easier then it really is to do in the game.  I’m also partial to these guys:

     Amazing.  I like that the script is such a relatable jerk-pranks story.

    I shared this with my son, a world-ranked Portal fanatic.  He approved.  ^_^

    Real people getting up to the kind of normal shenanigans one would, if gifted with magically delicious technology. This is awesome. 

    (sidebar: I want a word or phrase to be invented that has the same connotation as the phrase “deus ex machina” but that could be deployed to cover the purely science-based goodness when super advanced technology [from the future, from aliens, from NASA] makes a sudden , dramatic appearance in a story.)

    Okay, I know you can order a portal gun from Valve, but … where did he get moon-dust infused interior latex paint?

    Just great. Hope he has a bright future in the industry, scifi tv/film needs his ideas.

    So clever! The visual tricks were such a treat. I thought the gun was real! 
    I haven’t played Portal 2 for several months and I had forgotten how one gets out of the falling “loop”.  That just killed me when he went outside and (spoiler alert) shot him into the sky and then off the side of the house.  Seamless and hilarious! Good stuff, Maynard.
