If you've been playing Valve's latest fantastic release, Portal 2 -- and you should be! -- or even if you just played the original when it came out in 2007, then you're familiar with the innocent-yet-deadly turrets, sleek, bullet-packing robots that will gun you down mercilessly but kindly forgive you when you knock them out.

The video below, from YouTube user BlueXephos, shows off an early puzzle in Portal 2 where you can discover a hidden area that has a nice surprise: singing turrets. Check it out for yourself:
