    If only it was just the headphones and not a giant fucking record player strapped to their head. Jesus Christ Valve, do you even care about your theme anymore?

    I wanna know how the meeting went when they were thinking of making this.
    Eric: Okay everyone we need to come up with a promo for the soundtrack before we go on our company vacation to Hawaii. Does anyone have any good ideas?

    Jill: Since there's a vinyl version how about a hat with a record player on top of it connected to head phones?

    Eric: Brilliant, that's what we'll go with. We'll have one of our artists knock it out when we get back. I'll see everyone in Hawaii.


    Turns out it was all Jill's fault.


    What's my life turned into? I'm writing fan fiction for TF2 team meetings.

    ehhh theme-wise it's one of the more fitting cosmetics, even if it looks stupid. Period-correct and sufficiently 60s spy comedy/shoe phone-esque.

    I would of been happy with just a cassette player which would strap to the waist of the player with some headphones hooked on them which would randomly spurt out musical note particles.

    I get they were trying to be creative, but boy is that a mess...

    The album is available on Spotify.

    Although I'm eager to buy the physical edition, toh.

    No no, it needs to replace the killcam zoom in sound for anyone you kill or whenever you get killed with a record scratch.


    *record-scratch*
    Yep, that's me. You're probably wondering how I got into this situation.

    I love it for that: it's a joke. It's horribly impractical, but it's clear it has a purpose. Audiophiles that want the best quality sound even in the middle of battle.

    Many would have preferred a more serious item, like how I wanted the jukebox dispenser, but this has that absurd charm to it. Unlike many other promo/achievement hats. Head full of steam, anyone?

    Good grief lol.

    Even if it's way to early for it's time, I would have just preferred a good looking set of headphones for the scout with maybe a CD player attached to his belt or something instead lol.

    Just a little bit over the top with that design lol.

    I would of been happy with just a cassette player which would strap to the waist of the player with some headphones hooked on them which would randomly spurt out musical note particles.

    I get they were trying to be creative, but boy is that a mess...
    Actually yeah, a Cassette player would probably be way more time appropriate then a CD Player now that you mention it.

    At the very least the chess hat does something neat - Changes the chess piece depending on your current killstreak. This doesn't even have something fancy like that.

    It would atleast be worth looking like a complete tool if it had the record scratch effect people have mentioned, and it would be something different in the form of a cosmetic for the freeze frame.

    Its weird how initially I thought the Sound file hat was the stupidest hat ever put in tf2 and now I want it. Something about having a turntable on my head seems right.

    I personally think they needed to have spent more time on the idea of the promo hat.
    Its a novel enough idea I guess, but it could have been something much better that might have actually moved copies beyond trader nerds and people that wanted the soundtrack.
    And not been really fucking dumb.
    Here hoping against hope that they add a second style to disable the turntable.
    But valve just seems to have forgotten about styles as of late.

    It's probably a physical code that comes with the soundtrack.

    EDIT: Which reminds me, apparently with my two day shipping I'm supposed to be getting the vinyl next Friday. That kinda sucks.

    Yeah, it's a physical code.

    As far as Amazon goes, seems like everyone's Vinyl order was delayed. CDs arrived right on schedule. Can any other non-Amazon Vinyl orderers confirm if theirs is on time or delayed?

    Just got my CD right now, they let you know that the code is inside the case. Features a nice little battle damaged mercs alternative to the cover art on the back.

    The hat is a funny joke, but once you've seen it one time, that's all you ever need. It sucks otherwise.

    The physical version of the Musicl has a lot of love put into it, it even has a tiny photo-show of the mercs ;w; I've also noticed that Pyro is undamaged at the other side of the Box, perhaps a nod to the update?

    Havent followed the game for a while but it seems like they just gave up with this promo item. The Ap Sap was far cooler.

    Even the Grandmaster is better assuming you didnt pay 100 fucking dollars for a chess game.

    It actually made me laugh when i thought of the concept idea for this hat. This is what people in the 1960s speculated would be how you could listen to music, "on the go" haha, before the idea of walkmans and cassette players ever existed. To the 1960s, this woulda been revolutionary. haha

    Think it almost fits, but you have to get the joke a little for it not to be an obnoxious hat and i dont like the silhouette mess up it can cause.

    Plus its a bit too goofy
