We’ve all wondered what it would be like to have the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device in real life. You know, it’s the gun from Portal. Turns out, a device with such power could probably only be purchased on the black market.

The team over at HitFilm, a company that specializes in post-production software, created a video showing how an illegal portal gun transaction would go down.

The creative video shows off some cool effects, but more importantly, is a ton of fun to watch. And yes, even though it would probably be illegal to own, we would still be tempted to buy one anyway.
