Valentine's Day Gift Buying (video)
Valentine's Day Gift Buying is a video which was released by Valve on February 13, 2011 in order to promote Portal 2. The video takes the form of an Aperture Laboratories instructional video entitled "Romance Safety Compliance Guide", and uses Aperture Science's hallmark animations to depict four Valentine's Day workplace scenarios. An Aperture Science employee attempts to win the affections of a co-worker by offering chocolates, flowers and a diamond respectively, each of which leads to the co-worker's unfortunate demise. The employee then offers a Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device as a gift, which is accepted with no unpleasant consequences and, presumably, results in a long, happy and satisfying relationship.
