Kids Visit Gabe Newell For His Birthday, Give Him DLC as Present

It was Valve boss Gabe Newell's birthday on November 3, and to mark the occasion, some kids from 4chan's /v/ (the board's video games group) went and paid him a visit in the flesh.

In addition to giving him a giant card (which they do every year), and getting the chance to wish him a happy birthday in person (not to mention pick up some swag), they also presented him with a gift. A box. Which Newell was charged $2.50 to open.

Inside? A hat.


I won't say this often, but well played, /v/, well played.

UPDATE - Now with video.
