Claptrap offers director commentary for Borderlands 2 in farcical behind-the-scenes clip

Gearbox Software's lovable robotic scamp Claptrap offers a behind-the-scenes look at the production of Borderlands 2 in a new episode of the eponymous web series Claptrap Season 2.

If Claptrap's brand of humor isn't your particular cup of "reverse homogenized dog fat mocha berry semi-cola," Gearbox has thrown in a handful of Shift Codes at the tail end of the YouTube video, which Borderlands 2 players can use to unlock Golden Keys and other in-game bonuses.

In the episode, Claptrap makes casual mention of a few "spin-off" ideas with the titles Tiny Tina's Tea Party of Blood and Roland's Best Dance Crew but it's unclear if he's rattling off potential downloadable content or just having a laugh. Given the names for Borderlands 2's known DLC — Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage and Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty — anything is possible.
