A Day in the Life of a Turret

Downloads: Quicktime, Quicktime HD, iPod, WMV.

If a turret bitches about its job and nobody is around to hear it, does it make a sound? You bet it does. “A Day in the Life of a Turret” catches two turrets on the job during a typical day at the Aperture Science Enrichment Center, and the monotony that lies within.

The background music is by Damn Dangerous and is called “Nine to Five“.

    Could’ve done without the cursing. It ruined the child-like innocence of the way the turrets sound while they’re trying to kill you. Other than that it had a few funny moments.

    sigh.. you guys know that its not said PWNED its said Owned.. the p us used by mistake in most rts cuz u dont really have time to correct your typo.. its still said Owned.. noobs

    I’m with RAF2. Not only is cursing a cheap laugh (that is typically enjoyed most by the immature), but it just doesn’t fit the character of the turrets or the game at all.

  6. Dirtbag

    DranCoin, actually, you are incorrect. Has nothing to do with a typo. PWNED is just the cooler way of saying OWNED.

    Get it right or don’t type.

    And GREAT video! Keep it up!

  7. jason

    I thought it was funny. And that’s pretty much what our office sounds like all day 😀

    The only thing I would change is when they hum the theme is to either make the humming in the same key as the background music, or fade the background music out somehow, it’s in a different key so it sounds distracting (to me anyway).

  8. El Duderino if you're not into that whole brevity thing

    I laughed, then displayed this on my projector screen at work… lots of other people laughed as well. GOOD comedic timing guys! Hope to see more 🙂

  9. Elandur

    No, actually it did originate from a typo. See how P is right next to O? It’s easy to hit it by accident, especially in the heat of the moment (Though why he thought it originated in RTS’s is beyond me.)
    However, arguing about how to pronounce a typo is just silly. Anyone who uses it is being a bit silly in the first place (And hopefully everyone that says it knows it. Tongue in cheek is always nice, but some people are just dumb.), so they don’t take it too seriously.

    It’s like arguing “HEY THAT CARTOON DRAGON SHOULDN’T BE PINK BECAUSE DRAGONS ARE ACTUALLY GREEN OR OLIVE DRAB!”.

    So Dran, Dirtbag, you’re both wrong.

    Actually, you’re ALL WRONG. Pwnd originates in the dark jungles of Sweden, and is a shortened form of “pwndxyzgkhfyprtyxzktsklmnxszxgyt”, which means “He who has lost all honor because he was slapped in the face by a short, red-headed woman on the last Tuesday of the second month.”

    Woa, that was great guys! I really do wonder….will there be cake? And all the people who did like this video, go bitch about it somewhere else.

  13. /sigh

    Acccctually, from what I heared, PWNED is a combination of OWNED but using just a Pistol(usually the least powerful weapon in any good FPS). Killing someone with just a pistol is apparently the most vindictive move in an online FPS. Meaning the pistol bearer is l33t and the victim just got PWNED.

    So, to sum up, that spiel explains being Pistol-OWNED, or POWNED. PWNED for short.

    That is all.

    I really enjoyed this video. The one thing that I loved above all was the reference to Wargames “how about a nice game of chess”… I’m saddened that no one caught that before me. Tis a shame.

    People arguing about the word “pwnd” and it’s many spellings makes me feel so much better about myself. That being said, very funny video, got The Orange Box a few days ago and just played through Portal, great stuff!

    Pwned DID NOT originate from a typo you idiots, it was created during a game of quake, the guy combined two words Perfect and Owned thus making Pwned, he used it cause he got a perfect shot on someone, learn your gaming history nubcakes.

    LAWL, and argument on the etymology of a slang PWN

    BTW, greeat vid, made my day.

    I recently read an article BY Blizzard claiming that PWN was a typo created by one of their pvp map designers for Warcraft: Orcs & Humans (yes Warcraft I) when creating an endgame message of ” OWNS ” there was a typo, that slipped all the way to production.

    There was much documented use of the word OWN prior to this point, but their theory stands plausible, IMO. If I find a link, I’ll post it for your argumentative pleasure.

    Pronunciation, I say poned, just because I know it should be owned. Kind of like I say roffle and DoubleyouTeeEff

    Found this from DubiousQuality (yes, I’m a few days behind on Stumbling/Digging/etc). Almost stopped it, as the first 30-45 seconds wasn’t that interesting. But man, it gets so much better. It really picks up at the tic-tac-toe game, and just improves from there to the end.

    Especially love when the companion cube shows up, albeit so briefly.

  29. adam

    I liked this clip. I am only posting a comment to the turd who whined about there being cursing. Grow up dude it wouldn’t have even been funny without them. Go watch sesame street if you don’t want curse words.

  30. Andre

    Great vid! Watched it like 5 times and it’s still so funny.
    Make more with number 1 and 2 please!

    And btw, I always thought ‘pwned’ came from ‘power’ + ‘owned’ making it ‘pwned. For like when you’re on a winning streak or something, you just say ‘pwnage’

    lol? the cursing makes it even more funny because they sound so immature and yet they’re cursing the heck out of everything. its hilarous. “Come out bitch” Epic lulz indeed XD plus the cursing makes it even more funny when they’re talking in a monotone. “what the shit, balls. shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit”. and for the people arguing about OWNED or PWNED what he actually said was POWNED ok? he added a p to it. no biggie. a pwned DID NOT COME FROM ANYTHING SPECIAL. IT IS SIMPLY A CUTER/COOLER WAY TO SAY OWNED. the same way people don’t always say ROFL. they say ROFLMAO or ROFLCOPTER or ROFLCAKES and the same way people say FTW~ as well as WTF. the whole argument about it is pretty stupid lmao

  39. Jeff

    PWNED was a typo that dates almost exclusively back to 1997, Quake2. Do some research, planetquake.com had an article about it back in 1997 about it. It came from having to quickly type “owned” when playing, because there was no voice over.

    The p was hit with the right hand ring finger from hastily typing.

  40. Kristen

    Yep, “See you in hell cube” is the line that kept me laughing for hours. And I think the cursing actually adds something. Annoying coworker + dry turkey + being beaten up all day = cursing. And anyone who says otherwise has never gone through any of those things lol

    I dunno why u all argue about the pwn thing…..because its already like that so…let it be…..if u all dunt like it…just say own…..i dun understand why this thing can be a big arguements i think i spelled wrong but well who cares anyways 😛 THIS IS A FUNNY VIDEO,EVEN TURRETS GOT A LIFE HAHA

    Man did I laugh at this! Great work, even though I’ve never played Portal, I crack up every time I watch it.

  44. Betamax

    ok the cube says “owned bitches dominated…..yeah you guys like getting cube on the face pwned” ok he says both stop arguing and noone really knows who cam up with pwn first it could have been a typo or a mispelling in warcraft and the diffrence is pwn is totally dominating like the other played didnt do any or little damage and owned just means bassicly the same thing but not as epic
    and the vid was great laughed my ass off the first time I saw it hoping for more with turret 1 and 2

    A fine machinima. Thankyou.

    But… surely the reason the turret couldn’t get onto Facebook was because of the clause in their terms of service that disallows robots?

    Thanks for your constructive and well put together comment about our video. We will take the helpful and intelligent feedback and put it to good use in the production of our next endeavor. The words you have so thoughtfully put down on our site will ensure that our work becomes better. Thank you.

  58. ighnot

    Great job, guys. Don’t be troubled by the lowest common denominator types who critique it for cursing of all things, or just say it isn’t funny without any constructive criticism. I re-read figs’ comment just to be sure, and nope, I don’t see a link to the superior work he’s done. He fails.

    I can see you’re not really troubled by them, anyway. With your experience, you’re well aware that the signal-to-noise ratio of the internet is pretty high. Teh Intarwebz gives everyone a voice, even cretins and morons. You’re statistically bound to hear from them here.

    What people don’t get (and what GOOD writers like you guys DO get) is that you were SUPPOSED to peel back the layer that we all see in-game to reveal the mundane, problem-fraught lives of the turrets we used to see as two-dimensional, predictable entities. They bicker, they curse their existence, and they dream of what else there might be. Total genius. I wish I had come up with it, myself.

    I hope you’re considering what you’ve seen here in various forms– we want more turrets!

    AWESOME Vid – I LOL’d HARD … and out loud!!1 Cursing was perfect, humming was perfect. I liked it all. Fuck all the others who said something different!

  74. EggNogAdam

    Man. I StumbleUpon this vid about once every two days and I GLADLY sit through it each time. The voices are great. The dialogue is hilarious. “what the shit?” “Balls.” Hahahaha. That stuff really captured the essence of humor today. I even captured the audio and made it an mp3 that I listen to while I do other stuff around the house.

    I read this whole thread/comment board because I was hoping that someone had asked you how you made the voices. I am also very interested in how that was done. I’ve been experimenting with tune correction software and it seems that if I apply a little phase before I auto-tune I can get a pretty decent effect but I would still love to know how you all did that. I am really concerned with the humming part because that style would be a perfect background thing for a few of my songs. I’m hoping that you either have a killer sound card with a voice mod proggie or you use an auto tuner to get a “Cher effect” going; either that or I am way off. Hahahaha.

    Either way, thanks for makin’ this vid cause I Laugh My Ass Off every time I see or hear it.

    hey, I just wanted to say that this was a great short film. I loved and hated the cussing. Well, here’s what I meen. the “come out bitch!” was great. good part for a swar. The multiple falls (cept the final one LOL”Sssssshhhhiiiiiiiiiittttt!!!”) was kinda uncalled for and kinda broke the mold. please make more vids with the turrets or even the eyeballs.

    Sorry to fan an old Flame but it’s about this whole “pwned” thing I’ve been reading… look guys.. who cares how or where it came from? If your thick heads didn’t notice, the turrets was talking out abbreviations also like rofl and omg. now think, if you had a voice thingy that read text, it would do the best it could to say it. Let’s just axe the whole topic and say the turrets are what they supposed to of been, computers.

    I love how no one knows where this whole “Pwned” thing comes from, and all call each other noobs as well. I’d like to set this to rest before this continues.
    “Pwned” originates from a World of Warcraft map maker who misspelled “Owned”, and didn’t realize his mistake until it was too late. It has advanced into mainstream culture since then.
    On pronunciation, it was originally “pwned” with a bit of a u sound in there. Because of how it’s become a part of our culture, the pronunciation ranges anywhere from “pOned” to “pewneed”(I’ve heard it like that. From a little kid who assumed I knew nothing of it, he referred to it as “Halo-Speak” >_> ). G4 is the most mainstream place this is used frequently, and they pronounce it “POwned”. So most people pronounce it like that. Fighting over a typo is silly. Seems like a lot of people consider it serious business. 😉
    Now that’s resolved. M’kay? Pronounce it however you want, believe whatever story of its origin you want to believe. It doesn’t really matter. Elandur, Spezz, thanks for the input.
    Now, onto the movie. Even if it didn’t seem like something big at first, it turned out great. A lot of people love this. Congrats. As for critique, I think the falling scenes were a bit drawn out, and seemed a bit misplaced. I realized while watching this, was that if the turrets really fell that much, they would be used to it. Hence, no swearing. A lot of the swearing in it seemed unnecessary, but it really added character to the turrets. If you were to fix some things, I would recommend a new intro, and changing up the falling scene.
    I loved some of the humor you used in there. “No shit, sherlock” was wonderful, I’ve used that phrase quite a few times before. A lot like the “I take off my robe and wizard hat” joke in LeetWorld. Great references. The Cake reference and companion cube parts are great Portal jokes.
    Great job you guys, keep up the good work.
    This is the second time I’ve typed this out, I didn’t have something enabled for the comment to work. So if it seems a little off, that’s probably why.

    The combination makes it funny, you know…

    This is a gem. Not only did it make me want to buy Portal, but I came to your site looking for more. Your filmmaking skills are top notch. Dialog is funny as hell, your montage is spot on, background music is perfect. The references are great too. Don’t tell me someone is old enough to have seen Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid – or was the long shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit fall from somewhere else (and stolen)? Whatever. This movie is a lesson in filmmaking – everything works. Congrats. Too bad you can’t make money from it. If this was a moonlight effort, you’re in the wrong business.

    Lol. Turret life… Sounds good and looks better.^^- I hope you guys dont stop making movies. You are my idolsXD. Well see the next episode when?? Im really waiting it.

    Actually your quite the noob, Pwnd comes from PAWNS like those little useless pieces in a chess game? You know all about useless im sure.[/quote]

    Actually, you’re ALL WRONG. Pwnd originates in the dark jungles of Sweden, and is a shortened form of “pwndxyzgkhfyprtyxzktsklmnxszxgyt”, which means “He who has lost all honor because he was slapped in the face by a short, red-headed woman on the last Tuesday of the second month.”[/quote]
    Thats right its from the dark jungles of sweden, thats where i’m from.

    Why do I have a feeling that we’ll be seeing these guys in a future edition of Leet World? What a place for the next challenge to be. Each team has to deal with not only the other team, but also the turrets. Plus it gives a great follow-up…

    “Dude, Player is driving me *beep*ing nuts with that portal gun. He keeps dropping my tequila into the septic tank.”

  91. Lareese

    This is the funniest shit I’ve seen in a while. HAHAHAh my favorite line is “Come out bitch” and “What the shit” and of course “balls”. HHAHAHA when they block myspace and facebook…keep up the jokes and the cussing. please make a sequel…many would love it…I’ve already forwarded it to many people.

  92. Flip_Dude

    on the contrary, I think that the swearing makes it even more funny because they are swearing in the robotic monotone that conveys none of the emotion. To me, that makes it so much funnier than if there was actual emotion behind the voices.

  93. kris

    dude that is hilariouse. “i would insert m floppy into her disc drive. HIGH FIVE!” lol!

  94. Headline

    – “he is almost as bad as number 3”
    – “where is number 3? i havent seen him for a while.”
    – “he got disisimbled becouse of his attitude.”
    – “oh, how sad.”
    – “not really.”

    ROLF (i know its rofl, but i have that as a joke, couse rolf is a swedish name…)

  95. Ganendorf or somthing

    So great!!!!

    Yeah this 2 guys in leet world 😀

    PS: Can`t donwload clip for Windows media player :/

  96. Xenotype

    Loved It!
    My only complaint is the “High-5” sound effect, it’s too loud (especialy if your wearing headphones) but, strangely, oly on the WMV version, not the youtube one.

  97. Amps

    Let’s start arguing about “pwnt” now! It’s pronounced “Pownt”, but the e is short and the w is extended when elongated (“Powwwwwnt!” as opposed to “Poooownt!”) so it sounds kinda French. @_@
    Anyways, great job! Loved how you go into the heads, erm, CPUs of the Turrets, revealing that they’re not as innocent as they sound. As if anybody that has played Portal didn’t know that already, that is.
    Excellent music! Kudos to Jace! I downloaded it, and, even though it never fits what I’m doing, I listen to it all the time.

  98. Kukakkau

    wow half a year of “no its owned not pwned” – who cares people can say either it makes no difference
    funny but not as good as leet world

    This is a work of comical genius. Not even kidding, whenever I feel like shit I watch this and it makes me smile =].
    Personally I like the swearing, though many disagree. I think it adds to the theme because it makes them more normal. And in all actuallity, they dont swear that much anyways so it “doesnt ruin the inocence.”
    I have personally played Portal and it is a super fun game and this just gives you a different look at it. I get serious while playing Portal because its like a giant brain teaser. Its fun but it also makes you think.
    What Im getting at is that this and the game are both works of art and just like a musiem’s painting people get different thoughts and feelings about each piece. So some says its a “rip off” or a “bad use of swearing” or what have you… but if you look at what it took to put this together you have to appreciate it and its enginuity.
    Thank you for spending time to make people smile!

    I saw this for the first time on youtube and I really laughed out loud. Gotta say that you make quality machinimas, I really love your stuff! Keep making more. <3

    This vid would be pretty damn boring if they weren’t crude.
    It’s funny because normal robots, or turrets in that matter, don’t cuss or have a conscious.

    exelent movie !

    i love this one. just completed portal on the xbox 360 myself, and did a few achievements like camera shy, terminal veloccity, and cupcake. this is just so exelently put together !

    my question is: how did you get to make your voice sounds like a computer voice ? i’d like to do some hobbying myself, but dont know the programs i need to start off with.

    No but in the event that the Weighted Companion Cube does speak, We strongly urge you to disregard any advice the Weighted Companion Cube gives.

    In fact, all of the guys about the Pwned part are wrong, it’s a typo from a mapper who mistyped it from Owned when the rival got defeated, in a strategy game which’s name is of course not important.

    i dont know why i bother posting a comment now(when theres a gigantic ****ing list of comments),but anyway, wonderful short.Keep em comin,fellas!

    Holy moly your right 😀 That is awesome

  116. hypnotek

    well i have to say, this was funny. For all those people complaining about the cussing, grow up. True it is enjoyed by more immature people, but if you notice something about the characters, they ARE immature and that is the point. They are there to emulate the idea of early-twenties male office workers that often talk like that and use references like that. Other than that, great job guys, i hope you make this into a series.

    I never realized that there was a War Games joke in there!

    Nice.
