Start Your Day Proper-Like With EVE Online Rap Video

The craziest EVE-related thing since that guy took all that ISK and ran off.

If you want to wake up like I do, I recommend rolling out of bed, go immediately to your computer, rub your eyes until you can see straight, and check your e-mail.

Actually, forget the e-mail part, because checking mine led to this rap video about EVE Online, done for the players of EVE Online by some of the CCP folks that work on EVE Online.

  

  
Oh, I should probably tell you that there's cursing in this video, in case that's a deal breaker. Also, it confirms something I've expected for quite some time... you do not want to eff around with the dudes that make EVE Online. This is probably the greatest company-produced song/rallying cry since that "Infogrames Rocks My World" joint that got dropped back when there was still an Infogrames.

...OK, fine, here's that, too. Only one I found in an embeddable format also has dudes from an IGN podcast covering the song after the original plays... and that's also pretty good.

Nice techno viking dancing there.

Posted by Bucketdeth

Love this rap, I'd probably also love Eve if it wasn't so hardcore.

Posted by Fubar

Kinda 8 hours ahead here as i just got home from work now, but i must say it's the best thing about eve i'v seen.

Posted by MvB

Yup, this woke me up all right.

I'm getting  a serious goldie looking chain vibe from these guys

THIS is where the subscription money goes! 
 
Not bad.  They didn't once rap "and I'm here to say."

Posted by MachoFantastico

This is simply wonderful.... all I can think is why? Though surely rapping doesn't need reasoning.

Harden. The. Fuck. UP!
 
This was pretty fucking awesome.

Posted by Lepuke

Ya know the best part about that EVE Online video?
The fact that those people must truly love what they do... if I hadn't sworn off MMO's a couple of years ago I would give EVE Online a try just because of that video.

Posted by Xeiphyer
This is an awesome video! I want that ban hammer!!
 
Also, those asian girls are cute in their shanghai studio! I'd work there ;-)
Posted by NoXious

Harden the FUCK UP! o0k!

Posted by RagingLion

Watched this already during my actual morning.  Can't get over how well produced this is - the camera work and music are genuinely good.

Posted by Conojo

This makes me want to learn game design just so I could work with these people

Posted by CountRockula

I automatically love any company that does something like this.  It's just too awesome.
 
Although, on the other hand, taking the time and money to produce a big musical number seems like just the kind of fiscally irresponsible action that might have characterized the slow decline of Infogrames.  Let's hope this isn't the start of dark days for CCP.

Posted by Johnny5

Holy shit that was amazing.

Posted by twillfast

I feel this hasn't been said enough... harden the fuck up! ;D
