Portal Bedroom Is The Best Bedroom

There is almost nothing better than watching an adorable child be enthusiastic about something. Right? Almost any kind of thing. Like I’m sure it was very cute to walk into my bedroom when I was an 11-year-old and find it absolutely covered, pretty much all the wall space, in Hanson posters and pictures of Hanson torn out of TeenBop magazines. Certainly not a little dumb, even for a child, or kind of weird and gross. Just a cool kid who likes a sense of her own space in the world. Just like this kid! Oh my goodness do I love this kid! I have never played Portal, but I know that it’s about puzzles (I think?) (right?) (puzzles?), and after I watched this video for the first time last night I had a friend — who DOES play Portal — explain to me what all the different Portal things in this super cute kid’s room are about. That’s how dedicated I am to this video. I first loved it, based on no knowledge, and then I learned about it and loved it even more. “What does ‘the cake is a lie’ mean?” is a question I asked, for example. And, uh — DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS? That means a scary thing!* Perhaps too scary of a thing to have written on a baby’s wall, but this baby seems pretty tough so I guess he can probably handle it.


Another classic case of a kid who hasn’t yet learned how to breathe and be excited about something at the same time. “These are the pillows for my pillow bed” is one of the best things I’ve ever heard in my life and I will take it in my heart to the grave. Also I’m in love with the dad? THIS VIDEO IS THE BEST! PORTAL PANELS! (Via BlameItOn.)

*They tell you you’re going to get cake at the end of the puzzles but then they try to murder you instead!
