When things aren't just Dangerous, they're Danger-esque, block out UV rays with Homestar's killer shades. Remember, when walking away from an explosion, it's totally uncool to turn around to look at the carnage.
Official Description

The Dangeresque, Too?, also referred to as the Dangeresque Shades or Dangeresque's Shades, is a cosmetic item for the Demoman. It is a pair of white "shutter shades", as worn by Homestar Runner - the titular character from the Homestar Runner series of Flash animations - in the cartoon of the same name.

They are unlocked by defeating Strong Bad during a round in Poker Night at the Inventory in which he has bought in with the item instead of cash.

Update history

November 19, 2010 Patch

  • The Dangeresque, Too? was added to the game.

December 2, 2010 Patch

  • The Dangeresque, Too? was made paintable and giftable.

Trivia

  • The shades come from Strong Bad's low-budget, Ed Wood-esque action series Dangeresque, consisting of only three films; the item's name refers to Dangeresque Too, usually spoken as "Dangeresque...Too?". Dangeresque's (Strong Bad) sidekick, played by Homestar Runner, wears these shades. They first show up in Strong Bad email #106: dangeresque 3.
    • The model used in-game has some minor differences from the original cartoon's design. The Team Fortress 2 version is white by default and doesn't have any lenses, whereas the cartoon version is more of a metallic styling.
  • The in-game description references the poker term "splashing the pot", which means to haphazardly push or throw chips into the center of the table instead of keeping them separate from other players' chips. This practice is frowned upon, as it can make it difficult to account for the amount of chips anted.
  • This item was described by developer Robin Walker as the furthest they could bend the Team Fortress 2 art style.[1]
