I’m still alive. Sorry for the lack of posts from me, between MGS4 and my computer breaking I was sort of preoccupied with other things. Anyway, this seemed like a fitting thing to come back with.

There is something inherently frightening about GLaDoS as a GPS voice giving you directions. Seeing as how well that went the first time.

    i think it has it’s directions off a little bit, but overall having a glados voice for gps would be awesome

  2. Alink on July 3rd, 2008 4:02 pm

    if you reach your destination, there will be cake.

  3. Vabolo on July 3rd, 2008 4:05 pm

    Wouldn’t having HAL 9000 as your GPS’ voice be even more frightening?

  4. Orion X on July 3rd, 2008 4:17 pm

    I didn’t really find it lol-worthy. If there were Portal references during the dead parts, I’d so buy it.

  5. Moksanity on July 3rd, 2008 4:18 pm

    is this fake…or does that man have a hand made of rock…cause he doesn’t move at all…yea…i’m pretty sure this went through an editing program. Still awesome though. Fake stuff can be just as funny as the real thing =)

  6. Notahamsandwich on July 3rd, 2008 4:25 pm

    Hm. Saw this on GameTrailers two days ago.

  7. BLasthelmet on July 3rd, 2008 4:48 pm

    “We would like to inform you that android hell is a Very real place, would you like me to give you directions?”

  8. Omega on July 3rd, 2008 5:04 pm

    Not fake. Some GPS can simulate the route with a set velocity to see if it’ll work.

  9. Schlondak on July 3rd, 2008 7:10 pm

    Boy, I hope this is real. Like, I bought my dad the Mr. T voice for his Garmin, but this is so much better.

  10. Blank-Mage on July 3rd, 2008 7:10 pm

    “Wait, this isn’t where I -- OH GOD FIRE!”

  11. PikaMario99 on July 3rd, 2008 7:35 pm

    I noticed that the voice’s directions and the on-screen directions didn’t match up.

    Other than that, there was nothing funny about that.

  12. lolhax on July 3rd, 2008 8:17 pm

    GLaDOS doesn’t seem to know the difference between left and right.

  13. Evitron on July 3rd, 2008 8:34 pm

    Nah, having HK-47 would be worse. “Suggestion: Strain your puny, fragile arms to turn the vehicle to the left. Aside: And try not to break them in the process, meatbag.”

  14. Nova on July 3rd, 2008 8:48 pm

    @ Evitron

    Your GPS rules! :D

    *Nova buys it, and starts crying because it hurt his feelings*

  15. Rayza B on July 3rd, 2008 8:51 pm

    GLaDOS, your lost aren’t you?

  16. SonicXV on July 3rd, 2008 8:55 pm

    You have requested directions to the nearest Aperture Science Instant Escape Exit, instead I find that you will be more pleased with an Aperture Science Incinerator, consider it your birthday. And there will be caek.

  17. Pigeon Army on July 3rd, 2008 8:56 pm

    “Oh, I know what that cube did now! That was my direction cube, to stop me DRIVING YOU INTO POLES AND OFF CLIFFS!”

  18. Haywire on July 3rd, 2008 10:05 pm

    That is AWESOME.

  19. david2222121 on July 3rd, 2008 11:30 pm

    I would buy thatvoice in a set of HAL, HK-47, R2-D2, and maybe William Shatner.

    “Mr. Sulu…We are…arriving…at our…destination.”

  20. Pickle on July 4th, 2008 1:16 am

    Having this GPS should give you the ability to just portal to your destination, dammit. All GLaDOS would have to do is say a few catch phrases now and then, so that part’s taken care of. Now we just need to implement the part that makes portals, and stuff.

  21. killercartoons on July 4th, 2008 11:23 am

    wow, that would be the shortest trip ever!
    “The blue portal is open. Please step through. You have reached your destination. On behalf of Aperture science, I hope you had a good trip. Good bye.”

  22. Alphalance on July 4th, 2008 5:50 pm

    Anyone notice that the guy’s hand stays perfectly still for the majority of the film?

  23. Pickle on July 4th, 2008 9:05 pm

    Yeah, I noticed that. Dude has steady hands. The person holding the GPS could be resting their arm on something.
    BTW, while watching the video again, I realized the checkered flag should be a cake. Or maybe, the starting point is a blue portal and the flag is replaced with an orange one. I also realized it would be cool to have Morpheus giving you directions. It worked when he tried to help Neo escape his office. Though it might end up telling you to climb out a window, which probably won’t help you much.

  24. KevGamerSkywalker on July 5th, 2008 12:27 pm

    that thing is creepy.

  25. The Silent One on July 5th, 2008 10:13 pm

    Incoming. Cliff. Speed, up.

  26. metalgearrask on July 5th, 2008 11:10 pm

    Actually… I think the directions make sense. It says at the beginning to turn left, then turn right. It’s such a small distance, it instantly blurts out “turn right” immediately after the left turn. Now the question is, where do I buy this?

  27. Chunkey on July 6th, 2008 2:35 am


  28. Exploderizer on August 17th, 2008 10:45 pm

    i’d buy the mr.t version,but HK-47 is cooler,even though it might drive me off cliffs & into kindergartens…

  29. roulette25 on September 16th, 2008 10:16 am

    Wait? where am i? i never seen this place before, and where is the cake? OH GOD NNNOOOO……..

  30. Maiko on November 23rd, 2008 6:12 pm

    When I was moving down to Florida last February from New Hampshire, this thing kept telling us to go through the Bronx the whole time in new york. Even when we’re in the middle of Pennsylvania, it kept telling us to turn around and go to the Bronx. We turned it off somewhere in North Carolina (I DON’T WANT TO GO TO TEH BRONX, GLaDoS!) and we just winged it the rest of the way.

  31. Shady on June 13th, 2009 10:26 pm

    This guy's fine, as long as he doesn't need directions to go to his local pastry shop.

  32. holicarp on August 25th, 2009 4:34 am


  33. Sprekken on September 25th, 2010 3:29 am

    Oh, this could get hilarious if you constantly go off the route. "Where do you think you're going?" "You should have turned left before." "Are you even listening to me?" "I'm not angry, just go back to the highlighted route." "You're not a good person. Good people don't end up here." "Turn back or I will kill you." "You don't even care do you?" "That's it. I'm not talking to you. The talking is over." That would be awesome.
