"Meet the Pyro" TF2 video arrives and it's amazing, horrifying

Shares

Unfortunately, Meet the Pyro will likely be the very last of the official Meet the Team videos that we've enjoyed so much over the years. However, we're likely going to hear more about Valve's TF2 collaboration with Adult Swim soon. You may notice that the end of the video features the "Source Filmmaker" logo for Valve's machinima tools, which might possibly be related to the Adult Swim announcement. So perhaps we'll have more to look forward to after all. 

When designing the long-awaited Meet the Pyro video, Valve was likely faced with a dilemma: how do you make this person - who burns people alive while axing others to death - endearing and funny to a mass audience? Miraculously, Valve found a solution to that dilemma, and the results are priceless.

    That was awesome but that brings up the question from the bio of the pyro once again... We dont even know if its a man or a woman in that suit...

    Damn, this was better than if Valve did reveal who Pyro was, this was just, F*CK! Btw, idiots at /v/ and pretty much everywhere else think its a reference to MLP, the idiotic youth these days :P

    Oddly enough I have those same visions when playing Pyro. Oh I love the inflated unicorn...

    I give this video a 9/10 on the DKS... (Demented Killer Scale)

    Pyro is so wonderfully demented, lol. May be the best of the 'Meet the Team' videos.

    Each of those videos is even better than the last. That one just replace the Medic as my favorite.
