LongBlade

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

I found a page written by the person who adapted the Welsh song 'Lament' for that video. Also interestingly, the dialogue spoken is in Hungarian.

Vituð ér enn - eða hvat?  -Voluspa

Nothing really rocks and nothing really rolls and nothing's ever worth the cost...

"Don't you look at me that way..." -the Abyss

'When searching for a meaningful embrace, sometimes my self respect took second place' -Iggy Pop, Cry for Love

... this will go down on your permanent record... -the Violent Femmes, 'Kiss Off'-

"I'm not just anyone, I'm not just anyone-
I got my time machine, got my 'electronic dream!"
-Sonic Reducer, -Dead Boys

The commercial for Gears of War (2 I think) that featured the song Mad World made me cry when it debuted a few years ago.

I'd delete this before strangers who don't know you start joining this site.  We will pretend you never posted it.

The World in Conflict Soviet Assault promo was pretty good as well:

IIRC the band's name is Logh and song title is Death to My Hometown.

BTW is there an embedding option for Youtube here? Embed code and tags don't work.

Don't listen, Gus.
I always cry as well whenever I find myself alone in a warehouse with a five-story high alien spider boss ...

Nice.  Almost makes me want to actually play a Halo game! 




That being said, the trailer for Klingon Academy is probably still my favorite:
