I love that the token black character in Team Fortress 2 is enough of a stereotype to drink malt liquor from a jug, but then turns out to be Scottish.

"Ah'm a black Scottish cyclops! They got moore *beeeeeeep* than they got o' me"
Also the fact that he's clearly out of his mind drunk sat at that desk is just wicked.

I'm a grim, bloody fable with an unhappy, bloody end!
Demoman always kicks my ass, too.
|johnnyhamhock - 2007-10-09 |
God I love these videos. TOO BAD ALL THOSE FANCY BANK SHOTS HE DID ARE NOW IMPOSSIBLE POST-DEMO NERF BOOHOO
That nerf was so god damn weak. Demoman bank shots were super fun.
Wait, waht? You can't bounce grenades off walls a-la Quake?
You could, but they nerfed it.
"Demoman grenades (not stickybombs) no longer explode on contact after the first bounce"
So they'll still bounce and explode, they just wont explode if they hit someone after a bounce.

I really wanted to drop a star for the horrible fake Scottish accent, but I just can't bring myself to give TF2 less than 5 stars.
|HURF BLURF DUH - 2007-10-09 |
The first one of these character videos that didn't 100% nail it. I don't blame you though - it was probably a pretty tough task to make one of the characters black without resorting to stereotypes or doing it in a way that someone somewhere would find offensive. Making him Scottish renders him too incongruous to be offensive, so I guess that works.
|NineEleven - 2007-10-09 |
This was unenjoyable...when you have to have the black character explain why he doesn't sound black at all, that's NO GOOD
Because all black people sound alike, you know.
Hey you faggot I have superpowers, I'm posting from 2 years in the future. 'Sup. Anyways and I've seen ALL the available TF2 "Meet the" videos and you're fucking wrong, man. This was one of the best. This.. is.. SCOTLAND.
"Meet the Sandvich" comes close tho.
I also am from the future and I have come to defend the Meet The Spy video as the current pinnacle of TF2 videos.
I love this one, but sadly we must nevertheless fight to the death.
Also, doesn't sound black? What the fucking fuck? That is the new dumbest thing I've read in awhile.
|Afgh - 2007-10-09 |
This isn't even in the same league as the HWGuy and Soldier videos.
JUST LOOK AT THE MOUTH ON THAT GIFT HORSE

Only a few redeeming lines, otherwise not really at the level of heavy, solider...even engineer....
I want pyro.

I like Scottish accents.
Goethe and ernie
You'd love a real Scot then. This just sounded embarrassing, and I wanted so much to like it.

Was a solid four stars until the final singer.
Last night, I saw a demoman deliver that line live in-game. That moment alone was worth .
|Jeff Fries - 2007-10-11 |
You could write a short essay on how much of an improvement this is on the previous clips, but the "prancing around with your head full of eyeballs" moment speaks for itself.
|Grace Mugabe - 2007-10-11 |
These just keep getting better and better.
|remag2117 - 2007-10-11 |
Hmm. I've noticed a trend here with these TF2 trailers.
Heavy Weapons Guy: Big Slavic looking man speaks with Slavic accent and has Slavic mannerisms.
PoE community response: Brilliant! 5 Stars!
Soldier: Soldier-y individual speaks in a manner resembling a Drill Sergent and is very war-oriented.
PoE community response: Brilliant! 5 Stars!
Engineer: Blue collar looking man plays acoustic guitar by a "campfire" and speaks with a slow drawl with a hint of southern influence.
PoE community response: Brillant! 5 Stars!
Demoman: Black man speaks with a Scottish accent and has Scottish mannerisms.
PoE community response: Um . . .erm . . . Good, but not as good as the other ones.
Looks like this one might have stepped out of some people's comfort zones. I can't help but wonder if this video would have been better received if either 1.) Demoman was a pale guy with a kilt or 2.) Demoman had a South African accent or 3.) That really was malt liquor he's swigging down.
In any case, Brillant! 5 Stars!
Really it's just the dodgy Scottish accent that irritates me and would've made it a mere four-star. Also, I am fully aware that there are black Scottish people, so this slots comfortably into "Scottish guy drinks and swears and also there is bagpipe music."
The fifth star is for the bit where he unknowingly elbows a grenade off the table and it beeps and starts flashing red. So subtle I didn't notice it until the third time I saw the clip.
Oh and he does have kind of an armor-kilt-type...thing. With a smiley face tape to his crotch under it. KABEWM!.
No, it's just not as funny... and I love the idea of a one-eyed, black scotsman
Why in the world would anyone think that was malt liquor?
|FABIO2 - 2007-10-17 |
Shouldn't drunken bomb experts be Irish?
|j lzrd / swift idiot - 2007-10-18 |
This has given me hope that yes, there WILL be a video for each and every class in the game.
And yes, 'head full of eyeballs' sells it for me.
|Syd Midnight - 2008-01-11 |
Looking back in retrospect, months later, all of the TF2 "Meet" videos captured their character wonderfully. This is definitely The Demoman. I just hope they squeeze a few more out before the game loses corporate priority.
|bopeton - 2008-02-29 |
Demoman is the best class.
People who can play this class frighten me. You just die and you don't know why.
|Syd Midnight - 2008-04-19 |
So, now that you jerkoffs have waited 6 months for "Meet the Scout", do you still doubt that "Meet the Demoman" is pure excellence?
I WAS DROONK, WHATS YUIR EXCUSE?
|BornAgainCannibal - 2008-04-19 |
I love them like children, all the same (but the Engineer the most secretly).
|Squeamish - 2009-12-17 |
