There are times where I watch montages of someone playing a video game and think to myself, 'Hell, I wish I could pull of stuff like that!'

I never thought I'd be thinking the same after watching a Portal 2 montage!

 
 Also there's apparent free cake for anyone that can land the throw at 2:37. I might try and have a go at this myself.

Well damn. That's impressive. And he's doing it on a goddamn gamepad. Crazy.

There are a couple of glitches that I bet will get patched out soon. My favorite is the portal boost.

The same way you get to Carnegie Hall, I guess. Either that or this guy is just stupidly talented.

Wait, how is he throwing the cube? Anytime I tried it would go like one foot.

@KaosAngel: 

I read on Reddit (so grain of salt) that the physics between the xbox360 and pc versions are different and that the throwing glitch can't be reproduced on the pc.

apparently it's just the X360 physics being loose and exploited so.. nothing to see here.

@Nux: I think that all he does is let go of the cube at a precise moment. The game's physic engin takes care of the rest. All he has to do is time and aim

Even if it's because of a console specific glitch, it's still damn impressive.
