Valve’s “Meet the Spy” Intentionally Leaked??

At least that’s what I think. ;)

I found this yesterday, during the second time I was watching it (pausing every few seconds to ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ at the eye candy of course. ;) ).

During the opening seconds of the video, when the array of alert panels is revealed to the camera, when viewed in HD, it’s possible to clearly make out each one legibly.
Have a looky at what one of them says. (Just to be certain, I enlarged it in Photoshop and ramped up the levels) ;)

Now… I know that’s not really proof, but damn, that really is coincidental isn’t it? ;)

Of course, on the other hand, it’s possible after it got leaked, Valve went back and re-did this shot before releasing the final video…. it probably wouldn’t be too much extra effort… ;)

In any case, I really enjoyed watching “Meet the Spy”. IMO, it rounded up every other “Meet the Team” video Valve’s made and gave each a good backstabbing. :D

I’m still amazed at the production quality of these things, even though they are (more or less) ingame assets from a realtime game. I have to keep slapping myself to remind me it’s not a Pixar film. :D

Can’t wait for the next one. I’m still trying to figure out how they’re going to do the Pyro class video hehe. XD
