Pour one for the homies

Over the past few years, THQ has been in financial trouble, and declared bankruptcy recently.
A few days ago, their franchises were auctioned off to the highest bidders.
It’s a sad day for the gaming community, as the body of THQ was thrown to the vultures and picked clean.
Even in the midst of losing their jobs, the employees of THQ kept their spirits up.
Today was the company’s last day of operation, and in its final moments, they paid tribute to Saints Row.
This one’s for the homies
I’ll let the video below speak for itself.
In their final moments, the employees cracked open a 40 ounce drink and poured it out on the front steps of the entrance of the building, “for all of you… and the THQ and Saints homies.”
This is a reference to the Saints Row games, where you poured a 40oz drink on dead homies to revive them.
Unfortunately, THQ isn’t coming back anytime soon, but thankfully their franchises will live on through other publishers.
