The video was released by Brent Kennedy on October 6th, 2015, on YouTube and featured on the Team Fortress 2 website.
|[Camera pans away from windmill, then frame changes to wide shot of a barn. Angle changes to front side of the barn, viewed around the truck. Camera moves inward between the barn doors, Engineer is seen leaning near the projector.]
Captain John: "Keep your wits about you, Doctor Fisher. Our exploration may very well turn, (slight pause) to danger."
Doctor Fisher: "Danger, Captain? But what danger could there be here?"
Captain John : "Nothing. This lifeless planet is completely devoid of life. No life forms living on it whatsoever. Except for (pause, turns to Dr. Fisher) the creatures that live here. From our gathered intelligence, we know that these monsters are among the most deadly in the entire cosmos."
[Camera shows from left: Demoman, Soldier, Heavy, Medic, and Sniper watching the movie, except Demo is not wearing 3D glasses. Demoman examines the glasses, Heavy eats popcorn, Soldier takes a sip from his drink. The camera pans over left to Scout cradling himself and Spy hunched facing the adjacent wall.]
Captain John: "These bloodthirsty beasts are creatures of hate and habitual violence. All we know, all their kind has ever known, is to kill. And we're pretty sure they can shoot lasers out of their eyes."
Doctor Fisher: "Oh, Captain..."
Captain John: "Never fear, Doctor. We'll be able to get off this rock once we sample the tachion energy crystals, use it to re-energize the ship's warp drive, and use the resonating positrons to refuel our ship with the power of atomic energy."
Doctor Fisher: "I couldn't have said it better than myself."
[Engineer hears something outside, turns around and walks.]
Doctor Fisher: "Captain! Your radar!"
Captain John: "I'm picking up reading of tachion crystals nearby. Doctor, I need you--"
[Engineer walks outside and finds Pyro sitting. Pyro points to the sky and looks at Engineer. Engineer looks up and his jaw drops. The ground begins to glow with a green tint.]
Doctor Fisher: "Captain? John?! Is that you?"
[Camera clips back to the other BLU members inside the barn. Spy gets up and pulls out his knife. Scout is seen with a bucket on his head, Soldier pulls out a shovel, everyone else stands and looks around.]
Doctor Fisher: "John, are you there?! Say something!"
[Pyro watches a rock levitate from the ground. Camera zooms in on the film.]
Doctor Fisher: "AAH!"
[Film ends and a crack in the wall is seen behind the projector screen. The barn begins to shake as items fall from tables. Outside, Engineer watches a truck sound off and levitate in the air. The barn continues to tear apart with a green aurora as members of the BLU team watch in fear. Pieces of the barn float in a circle, the truck is tossed in the air almost hitting the Engineer. The rest of the wreckage falls to the ground. The screen blackens. Demoman looks around, when a bright green light shines on the BLU team. The camera pans up to a flying saucer. The camera takes a full view of the saucer and where the barn was standing. The camera zooms out from the ground into space. Four large crop circles can be seen in the distance. The camera continues to pan out away from earth showing many more flying saucers and mother ship.]
["Invasion Update" logo appears, followed by the Team Fortress logo above. Credits are shown.]
[The mercenaries continue staring at the UFO. Soldier runs in front of Demoman screaming and begins shooting the UFO.]
