Video transcript


  • The title card displays "COPYRIGHT LOLOLOL" on the bottom right corner, a recurring joke throughout the "Meet the Team" videos.
  • Faster Than A Speeding Bullet first played in this video. The track was later released as a part of the Team Fortress 2 Soundtrack.
  • At the beginning of the video, the members of the RED team appear to be coming out of the BLU base on Well. A similar thing happens in Meet the Demoman, as the RED team members once again come out of the BLU spawn area on Gravel Pit; unlike the Gravel Pit reversal, teams going backwards on Well is not too rare if a back-cap occurs.
  • There is a Level 1 BLU Sentry Gun at 0:16 that fires at the Scout. But in 0:18, what appears to be the Heavy firing his Minigun in the same spot is present.
  • When the Heavy is eating the Sandvich, he is also seen with a Shotgun. In-game, this would be impossible as they are both in the secondary slot.
  • The Sandvich in the video was later released as an unlockable item for the Heavy.
  • When the Scout pokes the camera during the line, "...and brother, I hurt people"; he leaves a fingerprint on the lens, which remains visible throughout the rest of the video.
  • The Scout's line about himself is a homage to the late boxing champion Muhammad Ali. He once said, "It's just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand. I beat people up".
  • At the end, the Scout is eating the Heavy's Sandvich. This was later referenced in the achievements "Dodgers 1, Giants 0" and "Don't Touch Sandvich".
  • While the Scout is eating the Sandvich, the Heavy's fingers twitch, suggesting he is only unconscious.
  • When the Heavy and his Sandvich first appear, the control point is displayed as being captured by BLU. At the end of the video when the Scout is eating the Heavy's Sandvich, the point is displayed as being captured by RED.
  • During his battle with the Heavy, the mouthpiece on the Scout's headset is turned down. However, while he is being held in a headlock by the Heavy, it's turned up.
  • When the Scout first enters into the title card, he has a thick shadow, which disappears every time the camera comes back.
  • The train seems to have carriages, whereas in-game, it does not.
  • Sound files found within Source Filmmaker reveal the full version of the Scout's monologue, most of which was cut out of the final version. This "full" version shows the Scout in a much meaner light, occasionally threatening the cameraman. (sound),
  • The seagull sounds in the final scene seem to be similar to the seagull sounds heard on Mannhattan.
  • When the Heavy is first shown, the olive is on top of the Sandvich (closest to the lettuce), like normal. However, at the end of the video, when the Scout is sitting on top of the Heavy eating the Sandvich, the olive has switched to being on the other side of the Sandvich (closest to the ham).
