Finally finished it! I just needed one more month. Clearly this video is way too late for the competition that ended more than two weeks ago. But hey, why waste all the effort put into this by...

You made this yourself? It fits the song perfectly good work

I've always found stopmotion to be a more respectable art form. Mainly because it takes hours of trial and error to get things done and it takes unbelievable patience to do it.

Does it feel like a trial...

This is probably the best one yet. Good job! ^^

Portal Theory Cave and Caroline had a child and named her Chell. They decided to give her up because they were to dedicated to spending all their time on Science. They decided to give her to one of their employees. Doug Ratmann. Chell was too young to remember this. Rattmann decided to bring 7 year old Chell to bring your daughter to work day. This was also the day GLaDOS was activated. GLaDOS killed all of the workers and their daughters except Rattmann and Chell. As Rattmann desparatly tries to escape GLaDOS kidnaps Chell. Putting her in one of the relaxation chambers. Rattmann makes it to the Test Subject personnel files. Seeing his daughters file up for testing he knows there is no way to get her out. Believing Chell can defeat GLaDOS he puts her first on the roster. Once Chell is of age she begins testing. Rattmann for the remaining time hid in unused portions of the facility. Leaving hints for Chell along the way. Chell defeats GLaDOS and finally makes it out of the facility only to be dragged back in by a party bot escort. Rattmann sees his daughter being dragged away and runs back in after her. Chell is returned to her relaxation chamber. Knowing the system is failing Rattmann connected Chell's chamber to the reserve power. Everything else goes the same as Portal 2 does. Until the ending. When GLaDOS deleted Caroline from herself any caring or affectionate view for Chell was deleted along with it. Once she lets Chell leave the four turrets appear and instead of singing they shoot Chell, killing her. The singing and fields of wheat are imaginary. As the Greek legend goes. When you die you will see endless fields, be united with the ones you love (Companion Cube), and hear angelic voices (Turret Opera) If you look up the English lyrics to the opera it is bacially GLaDOS calling Chell her dear daughter and asking her why she turned away from Science. This song gives Chell the truth. Letting her know Caroline or GLaDOS was her mother. Also if you have seen the very convincing theory where they explain that dead bodys are in the companion cube, I think Rattmann is in the cube Like if you agree :) Plz no hate, just my theory

+Rachel B it may be a theory, but some things contradict actual facts :/

It is not perfect (especially live action Chell does not belong in my opinion). But you made something that game, comic and music alone were not able to do: you made me cry. Thank you.

1:37 On Chell's paper why does it look like one of those criminal reports? XD 
Report spam or abuse
Am I the only one who think's that Ratman is actually Chell's Father? There is that one easter egg at "Bring your daughter to work day" Where the last science thingy (The one that's grown out everywhere) says "by Chell" in the bottom right corner. What I'm thinking is that Ratman wanted to keep his daughter alive, so he forwarded the power for her only.

Reality is a story the mind tells itself. An artificial structure conjured into being by the calcium ion exchange of a million synaptic firings. A truth so strange it can only be lied into existence. And our mind can lie. Never doubt it...

It's very sad, though I have a feeling that Rattmann could have just thrown a shoe at the turret instead of YOLO'ing down the tunnel...

Ratman's greatest sacrifice...  Although he isnt dead..  He might be now.. But when chell woke up she saw the blood.. True fact: Ratman was chell's uncle because ratman was related to cave jonson!

Chell could be Rattmann's adopted daughter.

Glados was a human But when human she was a great friend of chell day who Owned Aperture Labs but he forced her to become the robot It's a theory that Rattman had the build Glados and paint the Schematics to take her a part These is a theory all of it

i seen that in portal 2 in fase 18 rattmann watching me
Report spam or abuse
My theory of Rattman: What if he's not Chell's father BUT Chell's husband instead. I mean...sure, most people think Rattman's companion cube is his wife...but since Chell doesn't choose to speak, which indicates that something could've been taken away from her in her life...a part of Chell's mind could be put into the companion cube Rattman carries around. And, at the end of portal 2, when the companion cube comes with her...could Rattman or Glados be giving back what Chell had lost?

Then he escaped witch chell!

I still cant believe (almost 4 years later) that this video didn't win the video competition for this song... and they went with something not related to Portal, even though it was written for Portal... :/ Beautiful song, and this is definitely the best video to it!

Lets talk about "Exile, it takes your mind again" 0:10 This shows how ratman when crazy being all alone, and now Wheatly has gone bonkers when he was in exil for so long. Glados was not effected because the curoisty core cuases her crazyness. So she was not effect during her death loop.

Report spam or abuse
+Darkatday53 I believe what it was trying to say was "Is the Dough Rattmann Chell's dad, did he get chell into the tests to prove suspicions that she was retarded wrong, or was she just a random pick to be tested. And the answer to that is that Dough Rattmann put Chell first on the queue because he felt she had the stubbornness to stop GLADOS.

Actually, if you look through the notes in portal 2, it would show that Chell actually reffered to Cave Johnson as Mr. Johnson, so their might be a possibility that Cave Johnson was her adoptive father? That would also explain how Glados acted as caroline during the period of time that she was a patato. Also, if you listen to Cave Johnsons recording, He said that he wanted Caroline to look after aperture science when he was gone (As in, dead.) so their is a possibilty that Caroline is actually glados and was Chells adoptive mother? Its just my opinion, though.
Report spam or abuse
Meghan, I'm adopted and I call my adoption parents mom and dad. Good theory, but I doubt it is plausible. Also, if you read the whole thing, it says, "I asked daddy what his hypothesis was, and he said it was that Mr. Johnson will fire whoever ordered all the potatoes."

See, this is wrong. He didn't die there. In the Turret Opera scene at the very end, in one of the windows behind the turrets to the right, you see him walking away with his Companion Cube. Rattman Lives.
