What do Valve’s Portal 2 and Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas have in common? Until now, absolutely nothing — but thanks to a creative collection of Steam forum members, the two finally meet, ala Scooby-Doo and the Harlem Globetrotters, in one awesome music video called, appropriately, “This Is Apeture.”

The delightful holiday number, which no doubt gets its musical cues from “This Is Halloween” off the brilliant Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack, is straight from the “Goodbye Christmas Caroline” project, an unofficial Christmas album based on the popular Portal series, and sung by GLaDOS, Wheatley, and the rest of the robo-gang down at Apeture HQ (if your wondering, no, they’re not the actual voice cast from the game sadly.)

Yes, I’m quite aware that Christmas is well far behind us now — although I think my Christmas lights are still up — but that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate what might become a new timeless holiday tune for years to come! Okay, maybe not, but it’s still a pretty great song. So roll that beautiful bean footage!
