Halo Warthog comes to Sydney office

David Meego - Click for blog homepageThis is completely off topic, but worth mentioning. I am spending this week at the Sydney office for meetings and while I was here, we had something very special come to visit us.

A while back, when the Halo 3 game was released, there were a number of short movies created to help promote the game. Of those short movies there were three live action movies filmed as a collaboration with Bungie Studios, Neill Blomkamp, WETA Digital and Origami Digital LLC.

One of the props for the movies was a full sized Warthog. For those who are not Halo fans, the Warthog is the "Jeep" equivalent for the Earth troops. There is only one Warthog that exists in the real world, and that Warthog was at the Sydney office yesterday. It is being used for promotions of the new game Halo 3: ODST.

See the picture below (Click for full size). Yes, that is me in the driver's seat:

Below is the Warthog in action in two "Combat" short movies (combined into one). Watch in HQ mode for better quality:

Even if you are not a gamer, I think this is awesome. What do you think?
