Teleporting can be hazardous to your health

"Expiration Date" is a 15-minute animated short film from 2014 and this one was made mostly with the intention of getting more people curious about the video game "Team Fortress 2" as this quarter of animation was also made by the people who made the video game. And for that, it is a pretty respectable feat. The early love story was pretty entertaining, even if it may have been overdone a bit when he asked his superior for help and in the end the action sequences were too much as well and they sacrificed a bit of a better story or more really funny scenes for that. But thanks to the animation and also some of the jokes, it was a decent watch. Visually, this film was top-notch, no doubt about it and with this style it would also have worked as a full feature film. Maybe they will make one in the future too. I would watch it I guess and I think it can be a success. Until then, check out this goofy little film about what kind of chaos ensues when you try to teleport bread.
