You're welcome, Ryan. :(

For anyone interested, here is the email I received from Ryan immediately after this video was shot: http://i.imgur.com/pJ4iDV8.jpg

Wow! Thanks for sharing that. It reinforces for me that his (at least semi-)private communication with people displayed the same level of enthusiasm and joy that he shared with us fans. It confirms to me that he really was the amazing person that he appeared to be to those of us who didn't know him personally. That's what makes it so hard, is that the more back story I get about him, the more it makes me feel like the guy I listened to/watched/read every day was really "him", so I did actually know him.

Know what I mean? It's hard to explain, especially through these tears.

This is one of my favorites. Ryan's reaction to hearing this song is just priceless. God, I miss him.

This was great Ryan's reaction was priceless.

I thought to myself "It's like he's still here", then I realized he isn't, but then I realized that's wrong; he still is, in our hearts.

One of my favorite Ryan moments!

Man.... that guy was fun personified. RIP

Tears all around: happy and sad.

I love you, Ryan.

Thanks for posting this.

I never really appreciate him enough on GB earlier. Now retrospectively it's really apparent to see his impact on Giant Bomb. His spirit just made everything so joyful. He's not completely gone since he's gonna live forever on Giant Bomb's content ^^

That look that Vinny gives Ryan right as the song is starting just always makes me fucking happy! That of course doesn't top Ryan laughing on the floor like a maniac. I'm going to miss that laugh. Thank you Ryan for everything

@jakob187: Contact support or try a different type of player selection (youtube, html, etc.) The vast majority of people are not having any problems.

Easily one of the best intern videos. I miss those...

I didn't think I could smile this hard today. Thanks! Ryan Davis now and forever.

Best reaction ever.

I laughed so hard when Ryan was on the floor laughing.

Ryan, I'm gonna miss you like a motherfucker.

Rest In Peace Bro and Godspeed wherever you are.

Thanks GB for posting this.

It's so bittersweet.

I feel like there should have been a strong preface, or at least, a mild warning that this is an intern video D:

One of the best Ryan videos.

Great video! R.I.P. Ryan

Posted by ArbitraryWater

If we're going to start putting intern videos on the site proper, can we put the Fear Gauntlet on here? It's a shame that was relegated to the youtube channel while that stupid farmville series got to be on the main site.

Posted by rockhardalibi

Thanks for this. Great to watch Ryan show how to feel about this moment.

Ryan literally roflmao'd. Damn it....

@brackynews: The characters in RB are user-created, so with some work pretty much anyone could recreate them.

Apparently so. I just thought it was so uncanny how well he did them there must be some kind of dev tool when RBN authors want to add a likeness.

Oh, this is just fantastic.

Pretty sure this was posted primarily in honor of Ryan.

What I did to create the characters was just use the in-game creation tools while looking through hundreds of photos of them for reference. i put a lot of time into trying to capture their looks and personalities the best I could (which is why Vinny looks like a total badass).

I still have the characters on my game, and re-used them for the "Giant Bombstep: Reloaded" video. I'm keeping them in case I ever be partner up with the Bomb guys again. Who knows now.

@ozone: Cool, thanks again Owen! Helluva legacy.

This is one of my favourite Giant Bomb moments, it's just wonderful. Happy feelings!

Edited by Sharingan

Simply Amazing. Miss Ryan so much.

Edited by SKUupin

I roared with laughter when I first saw this video. I had to watched it a half dozen times before I was able to move on. This image, that of Ryan collapsed insensible on the floor out of happiness, is one of the most enduring images of Ryan I have in my mind. I am very glad that it has been fully archived now, for all to see Ryan at his vocal, smiling best.

Holy cheese this is amazing. I was dying right along side him when he fell to the floor laughing. This thing is hilarious and a really good way to remember him. Thank you for posting this.

Edited by beard_of_zeus

Goddamn, I loved this reveal. One of most joyous Ryan moments ever :D And I don't blame him, it's super crazy that this song got made!

Miss ya buddy.

Posted by ShiroGamer

Can we get a link to this song anywhere?

Posted by spazm6666

Every day I am coming to the site and seeing new amazing moments I missed over the years. Every one of them is better than the last, but every one hurts just the same. It is so wonderful to see this community come together and support the GB Crew and help each other through this. Thank you all. My thoughts are with you.

RIP Ryan.

I love how Will Smith thought Ryan hated him for a while! This video encompasses it so well.
