"Soap" MacTavish Undergoes Facial Reconstructive Surgery

image

After a sorting error left Escapist Editor Jordan Deam's plastic head of Modern Warfare 2's "Soap" MacTavish permanently disfigured, forumgoer mcipaulr came to the rescue by volunteering his own plastic "Soap" head for the first facial transplant of its kind.

The two plastic heads, part of Modern Warfare 2's "Prestige" edition, shared a common flaw: Tragically, they were both born with two of the same sides of their face, a rare but debilitating medical condition known as visiogeminitis. But while their deformity would have consigned them to the trash heap in years past, they've now made a full recovery thanks to the miraculous healing powers of The Escapist's forums.

In what will likely be seen as conclusive proof of the universe's inexorable harmony and balance, Escapist user mcipaulr's plastic "Soap" head was a mirror opposite of Deam's own - one came out of the box with two left sides, while the other came with two right sides. After a brief exchange of addresses and week's time in transit, both heads are now whole and fully capable of donning the absurd commemorative night-vision goggles with which they came.

"After waiting for MW2 to come out and getting the Prestige edition, I was expecting everything to be in 'Prestige' condition," said mcipaulr. Imagine his disappointment when, upon "gently opening the box and unpacking each part, I found that I, too, received the same side of Soap's face twice. ... But in less time than it takes to get a hold of Activision, [Jordan and I] were already swapping addresses. Today, I got my missing half, and my night-vision goggles are sitting proudly on my fireplace mantle, much to the dismay of my wife."

Oh, so THAT'S what that was.

The internet is a fantastic place.

That is quite awesome.

I expect its more the guy making the noises; probably a lot of shuffling and yelling "ha hA!"

So you gave each other head?

(Couldn't resist).

Ever played Splinter Cell? Know that high pitched whine when you turn the goggles on?

I thought that was just Sam Fisher whining that they were uncomfortable.

That was terrible.
Still laughed though.

Anyway, it's nice to see that everything turned out happily, or something.

B'dEWWWWWWWWWWWWW!

He always looks like that when he's skulking around. It's hard to be intimidated by that silly grin. But then, that's how he gets you.

That picture at the bottom is awesome.
Glad the problem got solved.

Susan Arendt, you are senior editor of a reputable online magazine. It is not fitting of your position to go around ninja'ing innocent forumgoers.

But Susan is a Ninja. I've seen her papers.

Her Ninja papers.

Her Ninja papers.

Having papers certifying your ninjatude wouldn't be very ninja-like.

Talk about lowest common demoninator :)

And NOWWWWWWW, we have the "Make Jordan Look Even CREEPIER" Contest. Sponsored by ME! Whip out your GIMP or Photoshop and get to work!

Letting other people see them certainly makes me question their authenticity.

Depends on what I'm doing while they look at the papers, now doesn't it?

Or, he could have just been whispering "I'm stalking you".

Agreed! Let creep begin.

....Is it just me or has the whole Escapist production team gone barking mad???

Oh wells, no worse than the mods of some other sites I've been on... :P

Holy buckets, that's how Web Phenomena start. I did not even know that a disease like that actually exists. Who said The Escapist is only game journalism? And about the noise, I think it goes somewhat like this: Chewwwwwwwwwiiiii. That pyramid head made me laugh so hard I almost woke my neighbors.

And if you want to make Jordan creepier, put Yahtzee's head over him.

We are peoples too! And it's Friday - of course we are gonna have some fun.

He also smiles like that when he dances.

This is a valuable lesson in being careful what you do in front of a green screen. You never know what someone is going to chroma behind you.

No. No you are not peoples. You are infact machines that I secretly built whom I designed to create the perfect videogamers haven on the interweb... One day I shall activate your true programmings and you shall help me take over the world! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!

*ehem*

Ok, to be fair I don't think you lads are as peculiar as the blokes who made this video, who are infact also moderators and whatnot for another site :P (it also happens to be an EPIC video)

Hows this?
Besides the cheap 'mspaint worthy' photoshoop.

I love Friday.
