Seeing how the X-com is released very soon, it most likely is promo for that. :x But who knows. Valve usually don't show what promo the game is for (last game they mentioned on the blog with a promo was the Worms promo), so you have to dig on the steam store or the Team fortress 2 wiki.

Look at that hair. That is guile hair. This is 100% X-Com.

Also. Crafty Hair. One who is crafty might be considered to have a great deal of guile. See what they did there?
