Valve announces Exile Vilify music video contest winners

Valve, the fine folks behind Portal 2, have announced the winners of the “Exile Vilify” music video contest, choosing not one, but two winners.

The contest tasked the community with creating a music video for “Exile Vilify,” the song The National wrote exclusively for Portal 2. Valve says it received over three hundred entries–ranging from puppetry, animated shorts, stop-motion, and live-action–for the contest, and ended up choosing two first-place winners.

The decision was so grueling that Valve enlisted the help of The National, the folks who actually wrote the song, to help make the decision. Ultimately, two winners were chosen, and you can watch both videos at Valve’s website.
