Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut. Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.

We here are no strangers to a good mashup. Often we feature them in our daily roundup of neato bits and bobs, Nerdy Bits. Other times they are so fantastic, just so freakin’ awesome, we need to share them immediately.

Such is the case with this brilliant video from Harry Callaghan (Harry101UK). In fact, this video exceeds most mashups because it doesn’t simply take the audio of one thing and mash it with the visuals of another. No, he’s created something new and marvelous.

This Is Aperture” features GLaDOS, Wheatley and those turrets who kept trying to kill you as you made your way through Portal and Portal 2 singing to the tune of “This Is Halloween” from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. Complete with new and hilariously appropriate lyrics.

At this point I’m sure you’re twitchin’ from excitement so let’s just watch it already!

Hey Valve, we love Jonathan Coulton, too, but come Portal 3, I think you should give this guy a call.
