** Peter Hollens, who previously produced a cover of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDzlKtEVZJU "I Want You Gone"]] from Portal 2, produced an acapella verison of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H18XBTDNF78 "Still Alive"]] with his wife Evynne. Evynne's plastic smile, plus the fact that she doesn't appear to blink once during the video, sell the performance. Devin "Supertramp" Graham put together [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Osdjho3oKw8 this version]] showing three Aperture employees using a Portal projector to lob cakes at random people.
