Two images can be found hidden in the informational video Aperture Investment Opportunity #3: "Turrets" uploaded by Valve on their YouTube channel on April 5, 2011, at the 38th second.

The first image features the portrait of Cave Johnson. In the foreground expression and different text can be seen, along with a code of the following text:

Here's Da Beens, Dougtato:
