    after all, the last human they had destroyed their entire facility

    There is an underlying theme to this video.
    Nothing can be trusted.

    Oh wait, you were expecting a joke.

    It costs millions of dollars and years of research to build a pair of robots that will trust each other… for six seconds. </lame heavy weapons guy joke>

    What? I threw my best friends into fire pits all the time, and they didn't get mad. Granted, they couldn't really get mad with the whole flesh burning thing.
    How am I not trustable?

  6. BoxeyBrown on March 28th, 2011 4:45 pm

    I already trust these guys more than my friends…

    Needs more Crusher

    I have a whole new respect for GlaDOS. She waited 19 whole levels before pushing me into the fire. I guess we made quite the team!

    Recently, I have been questioning my investment choice of Aperture Science. Now that I see what they put my money toward, I am quite pleased with their results. Those were the best 6 seconds of my life.

    Funny, reminds me of Magicka co-op play… no, humans can´t be trusted. Especially if your things are shinier than theirs.

  13. invadingduck on March 28th, 2011 5:34 pm

    Fun Fact!: Fire destroys all friendships.

    I liked Aperture Science better when their public personality came from a soul-less rogue AI program.

  16. oreopizza47 on March 28th, 2011 6:10 pm

    That is not trust. That is backstabbing. We sell that, too.

  17. Armetron on March 28th, 2011 6:23 pm

    BAM!!! robots gave us 6 more seconds of cooperation than humans, good job robots

  18. Sir_Nox on March 28th, 2011 6:24 pm

    Hug Teammate

    Pick them up and throw them into Incinerator.

  19. £cake on March 28th, 2011 6:38 pm

    Do be fair it seemed like the orange-eyed robot had the worse end of all the trust tasks. Being flung across the room, almost taking a laser to the face--I don't blame him for pushing the other robot into the firepit.

  20. Mentlegen on March 28th, 2011 6:52 pm

    So, somehow all my comments in this submission are disappearing.

    I guess even IntenseDebate hates them.

    friendship.exe failure;

    >TerminateProcess "test_partner";

    >run <trollface.exe>

    Critical failure: facial expressions unavailable!

    >run <fuuuuuu.mp3>

  22. Leo E. on March 28th, 2011 8:58 pm

    And so we put these robots through a series of rigorous exercises to build a sincere bond of trust!

    *one robot pushes the other into a fire*

    Those aren't the trustworthy robots. They're the bitter ones. We sell those too.

  24. MC Ninja on March 28th, 2011 9:05 pm

    Maybe I'd trust robots if I would've gotten cake and be still alve.

  25. fmarulz on March 28th, 2011 9:26 pm

    the voice is from Ted Williams isn´t it : D

    I´m wrong as I just found that the voice is from J. K. Simmons : D
    And in the process I found out he is doing the voice of Aang and katara son Tenzin
    And after that I found out there is going to be a new series of avatar : D

  26. GazzyW007 on March 29th, 2011 1:35 am

    That's betrayal, NOT The Power of Friendship. We sell that too.

  27. Shady Kitsune on March 29th, 2011 1:56 am

    It keeps happening!

    I told you about the test subjects, doc! I told you!

  28. deathbychickens on April 7th, 2011 10:33 pm

    It's as if Valve knows what we're gonna be doing in Co-op.
