That's one hell of a Valve fan. Playing the theme song from Portal with a Theremin while wearing the HL2 shirt that came in the Special Edition versions back in 2004...

That was really cool.

Hey, even Stephen Hawking could play it this way.

If you people had actually played through the game Portal, you wouldn't be insulting this, lol. :)

The theremin itself sounds extremely similar to the robotic tone of voice of the A.I. computer character in Portal. That's why it's done that way.

Obviously it sounds like crap if you're expecting a professionally mixed musical recording, but that's not the point of this.

The fact that he's playing along with the Portal song raises the geekiness by a factor of 2. They should pan the camera out so we could see mom's basement too.

Very ingenious and intuitive use of a Theremin though! :)

I beat the game before you did and it still sounds like shit.

I still have that HL2 shirt. I use it mainly to sleep now since the shirt shrunk. Now I wear a Persona 4 shirt to express my nerdiness.

Nice theremin action though.
