There's no way to convey what Drew has meant to Giant Bomb in one single video, but here's a little something I made in an attempt to make a tribute to him. I also wanted this video to feel hopefull to reflect the future, because I anxiously await what comes next, both for this website as well as for Drew. Thank you so much dear alpaca enthusiast, for the joy you've brought behind of and in front of the camera.

That was wonderful. Great job!

Out of curiosity, what was the song you used in the video? It sounded familiar, but I couldn't put my finger on it. Was it from Chrono Trigger?

Minor missed opportunity: How could you not end with Drew doing the sims diamond? <>

This was super great to watch. Gonna miss the little fella, but if you love something so much, sometimes you need to set them free so they can FLY.

Can't wait to see what follows.

Honestly, since Ryan, my enthusiasm for the site has been dwindling. The podcast was my anchor. Was.

Another brick in the wall.

I'm a big fan of Drew as well. I'm also super bummed that he's leaving but super stoked for whatever he does next. Good luck ultimate dude bro.

Very nice video, tugged at my heartstrings. There were both clips I recognized and clips I had never seen before, like his first appearance.

It's music from Gunstar Heroes, originally. I know it better as the music they used again in Astro Boy Omega Factor for a sad last stage, in which the main characters have to navigate a hailstorm of debris to throw themselves into the sun, which will stop it from blowing up. They also used it in Gunstar Super/Future Heroes. It's an amazing track, and a good fit for bittersweet goodbyes.

Good job! You even got Drew's 2 man pyramid he is so proud of. Now someone make a supercut of all of Drew's puns.

Man, now I just feel extra sad, having been reminded of all those Giant Bomb moments Drew has been a part of. He'll always be our special alpaca boy.

Honestly in the last year he has become my favourite member of the crew. Pair him up with anyone and it becomes stellar content. Really sad to see him go the dude is awesome.

When I grow up I want to be like Drew Scanlon.

That video would be, like, a day or two long.

Fine, I'll settle with a "best of" compilation that lasts for 15 minutes cause i dont want Drew to throw a bottle at himself for the bad ones.
