Also we made a movie about a sandwich. The clips have their origins in audition scripts for the voice actors who played the likes of the Heavythe Sniperand the rest of the characters in the game. The first video in the series released in MayMeet the Heavy, is almost word-for-word what Valve used to cast actor Gary Schwartz.
The video was made on the heels of a Portal video used to promote the personality of that game. After the first short was released, viewers praised both the quality of the animation and the humour of the script, likening it to productions by professional animation studios such as Pixar.

Developer Robin Walker has stated that the shorts "tie in to the strategy we have with TF2 of continually updating the service What the videos do is give ways for people who don't even have Team Fortress 2 yet to get some entertainment from the game.

An example of the series' influence on the design of the game was the Sandvich. According to Walker, the item "came almost directly out of the movie We felt the movie had justified and created a way for us to have a 'Sandvich' in the game and have that action [of eating it] make any kind of sense in our game world".
