Youtube messed up the video on youtube, so don't take it 'as is'. The video is in perfect / higher quality, smooth, and running like a boss when played from the actual in game Left 4 Dead  (if you so choose to rename and replace L4D2's with this one).
Download, rate, comment, and have a happy and lucky Friday the 13th! :D
I first heard this song in this trailer back when it was running as a youtube ad:
Song: VARIOUS CRUELTIES - F.E.A.R. (featured in Banshee HBO)
I wanted to make this from the moment I saw such "Banshee" trailer / ad and heard such song, because the way my mind imaginates videos is mostly from listening to various songs and depending on the song, a scene will start painting it's picture in my head. I don't really force it, it just comes naturally to me.
From scratch, a scene is painted from just picking a 'lore' that fits the song and it's sound, and then going from there, my mind just starts making everything up from scratch (characters & props used, plot, area / place, lighting, voice, story, events, etc), but for ease of creation, since what I was imagining pairing this song with was left 4 dead's lore while I was imagining a scene, I went ahead and checked how well the original Left 4 Dead intro pairs with this song, and wouldn't you know it, I found they were MADE to go together... but I procrastinated until now. <_<
In summary, instead of making up a new scene to go with such song, I found one already made that fits perfectly :D
The thought and image just came back out of the blue, on the eleventh, of when I felt the urge to listen to the song again, and the work ethic to finish it was restored, so I started from then and finished today, to upload it on what a more fitting day? :)
To make this video, I used BINK's RAD video tools and audacity:
