Random Things Linked to the Halo Series in Completely Random Ways

This entire article is born from boredom. With that out there, I'll be linking the Halo series to several seemingly irrelevant bands, figures, companies, movies, and television shows. Why? I don't fucking know. 

Let's go.

Miley Cyrus (Public Laughingstock)

-Gavin Free currently works at Rooster Teeth.
-Rooster Teeth became successful through their machinima series Red vs Blue.

Was this article completely stupid and pointless? Absolutely. It did, however, amuse me to know end to write it. There are several other connections within these connections, such as Joss Whedon directing both The Avengers and creating FIrefly, which starred Nathan Fillion, but I digress. It's interesting to link things together although they may seem completely unrelated. 

That's all. I was bored.
