Man, this is a joke! A couple of guys made this up, sending an E mail, to C5N chain, NOBODY WITH SANE MIND WOULD DRINK THIS STUFF! This is just to prove that those guys don't check there info.

so, the internet did that job... and ron post this thing at grumpy gamer...

we are not worthy!

cheers

Posted by Diego on Aug 30, 2009 quarter to ten pm

Thank you so much Mr. Gilbert!! Your recipe for grog still makes Argentinians laugh, even 20 years later.

Yay, you posted it!
You're awesome, Ron Gilbert.

Hahaha, Ron saw it!!! Sos groso, Ron!!!!
Just look what we have to do to prove you how much we love you in Argentina :P
Now you'll have to come and drink grog with us, no exuses :)

Posted by Nacho on Aug 30, 2009 ten past ten pm

Woohoo! Rooon! Yeah! You are the best, Ron! Woooohoooo!!!

Amigos argentinos escuchen atentamente porque no hay tiempo que perder: este sitio propaga informacion sobre c�mo preparar tragos t�xicos. Tragos que luego los adolescentes descarriados beben y mueren de insuficiencia renal en una cuneta de Villa General Lagos. Organicemos un piquete por una juventus libre de drogas! Destruyamos a este Ron opresor de una vez por todas!



Also, I'm waiting for the mysterious awesomeness suposedly to come this monday. Deathspank in every store perhaps?

Posted by DAGO on Aug 30, 2009 quarter past ten pm

The editing on that youtube video sucks, but when that aired the other day a friend called me during the program and screamed at me "PUT C5N NOW YOU'VE GOTTA SEE THIS!" and I almost fainted laughing.

I loved that Dr. Cormillot went and "searched" for Scumm and the only thing he could find was some alcohol delivery website in Argentina...
http://www.scummdelivery.com.ar/
By that I can deduce by that the guy doesn't use google and he yahooed(?) the name (only in the argentinean version of yahoo you get that website on the first page).
He must have thought "man, these guys deliver GROG XD door to door to little children around the city!" hahahahah.

Posted by Pendor on Aug 30, 2009 twenty past ten pm

I laughed my ass off when I saw it on TV.

The "What could SCUMM probably be?" part is EPIC.

Thanks again, Ron. For everything.

P.D: I sent him the link yesterday. Not sure if he got it from me first or someone else.

Posted by Domingo on Aug 30, 2009 five to eleven pm

There's another video, but I don't know if it has subtitles or not, which shows the reporter saying something like "...Who could possibly think of drinking kerosene just for fun? But this actually happens. You just have to ask the teenagers who drink this with a complete straight face..."

Well, I'm pretty sure he drank a lot of kerosene when he was a kid and it ultimately destroyed his brain, up to the point where he couldn't realize such a drink can't really exist, because nobody could drink acid (or pretty much every other Grog ingredient, except maybe artificial sweetners and SCUMM) in real life without instantly dying.

I would like to know why didn't the reporter list SCUMM as an ingredient but Dr. Cormillot did, and why none of them mentioned propylene glycol.

Posted by Bernasca on Aug 31, 2009 twenty to seven am

Maybe they didn't because they weren't sure what SCUMM was. So they thought "SCUMM? WTF? no, don't put that ingredient in the list, we don't wanna look like stupid in TV!" XD

What I really wanna know is who wrote that mail to C5N and what did it say!!!!

Hey Ron, please stop poisoning our children!!! Say no to Grog!!!

jajaj the thing is this ppl arent hjournalists, they are a joke, that channel is a joke and everyone down here knows about it, they try to be like "all cnn" like shit and they fail bad, they dont check any facts.

Posted by Kelgrim on Aug 31, 2009 ten past two am

I thought you have to study journalism before you can call yourself "journalist". He is just a TV guy, like some jerk anouncing the next videoclip.

But maybe that is the secret of Monkey Island. No matter how hard you try to make something look unrealistic/ironic, some idiots will still take it seriously. Like anouncing a super secret and watching other idiots trying to find out what it is for YEARS.

First time I saw this I just wanted for Ron to see it. Now that he saw it, I just wanted to be there to see his face!!!

by the way Ron, this shows how argentinians love and admire your work!!!

Come with us for some grog, Argentina is the real "monkey island" for sure!

Posted by on Aug 31, 2009 twenty five past nine am

This is the kind of yellow press we got in Argentina: stupid, fascist and uninformed.

Posted by Cuiviewen on Aug 31, 2009 ten am

Oh gosh... just tried Grog XD... Hey, Ron... the pepperoni kind of upset my stomach... should I do without it altogether or could I use cannabis instead? It's legal to keep some here in Argentina now, so it could be an awesome combination!

As for C5N... I hadn't laughed THAT HARD in years! They couldn't even tell that the XD was an emoticon! They must've thought it was EXTRA DAMAGING or EXTRA DELUSIONAL... but it just meant they're EXTRA DUMB. Those so-called journalists are simply pathetic... the wheel's spinning but the hamster's dead. Maybe it was the grog...

Posted by Garbled Zombie on Aug 31, 2009 ten am

@Rufian: You mean there's another kind of yellow press?

Posted by LazyAndroid on Aug 31, 2009 half past ten am

Of course, there is also the intelligent, neutral and objective yellow press...

Wait, no, there isn't.

Posted by Lucy on Aug 31, 2009 half past ten am

I laughed a lot!!! and i think i won't stop laughing in a long time...but, cormillot is nothing but a fake, you could ask any nutritionist about the advices he gives,  and besides....why he commented something that has nothing to do with his area

I agree with Cuiviewen about the C5N journalists, and also with the person who commented this
"C5N = Fail

Fascist and stupid press"

Posted by Harry Potel on Sep 1, 2009 twenty five to five pm

Hahaha, Ron, you're a genius for posting this, really.

What a shame that my country gets known for this kind of things really, I still cannot understand how nobody tried to stop this before airing... who could think that a kid can actually survive this?

To make things worse Cormillot is actually a well known and respected doctor here, but the bit about Scumm was just too much, the can say anything!

The worst thing of all is that nobody in that network ever played Monkey Island... how could that happen?

Thanks ron for the grog.

Thanks Argentina for being sooooo generous.....

I've heard the journalist is planning on voting Governor Marley for President

E' incredibile: si � avverato il mio sogno. Io facevo questi scherzi con la ricetta del grog quando ero a scuola.

This crap reminds me when a bolivian news channel announced a (suposedly real) plane crash with screenshots of the TV series "Lost". Truly sad :/

Posted by nicolas. on Sep 9, 2009 five past three pm

i just wanna say thats there's an alcoholic drink called grog, that far you could be aprehensive with this (fascist, anti-democratic, selfish and egocentric) people who ignorants call journalists, but the rest it's a shame. anyway i would say that im happy about this for 2 reasons, first I LAUGHED FOR 2 HOURS STRAIGHT, and second, free advertisment for monkey island, wooohooo ! you rock ron ! im playing monkey island 5 by chapters, i hope you we're more involved in it ! greatings from the country of Peron and Evita.

lol , im from argentina too
so i saw that in my tv xD

Posted by Micaela on Sep 16, 2009 six am

Wow... I can't believe this. I'm an argentinian and I didn't see this on TV! Monkey Island must be on of the most famouses games of the history. This happens 'cause our journalists don't RESEARCH. And the worst part is that Dr Cormillot (the guy talking about the SCUMM) it's a very famous nutritionist, and has chains of healthy food and all that. So that's the reason why they called him.

What a generous country!!!

Posted by Ka Member on Sep 20, 2009 five past ten am

Wow... I've never seen anything like that. In fact I haven't seen it at all, as the file has been removed due to some copyright issue requested by a company named "Artear S.A.".

The error message is in french (as I am in France it is not as strange as it may seem), is it a local problem ?

Posted by Qwerty on Sep 21, 2009 twenty five to nine pm

yeah, this company Artear is part of Clarin, a multimedia group here in Argentina. they've business with Google, so every time that some content which could damage Clarin is found within Google's domain, it's automatically censored. TVR, the tv show that made this video is a Canal 13's program. as u can imagine Canal 13 belongs to Clarin.
I don't want to go into politics, but there're a lot of things that are being censored by Google. Many of them are not funny things like this, instead they try to obliterate serious stuff involving corruption, mafias, and many other dark business.

Posted by Someone on Sep 21, 2009 twenty five to nine am

Oh noes, it's gone! Anyone got a mirror?

Dear Ron, i send you the new link for that Grog Epic Fail in the argentine news C5N channel.

This has not been claimed for copyright issues, and it also has english translation.

I rewrite here the link for anyone who likes to see it again. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HeSCBAy4p4

I can't stop to hate my country. xD

Posted by Daniel from URUGUAY on Oct 31, 2009 quarter to nine pm

Hah, so in Argentina a bunch of people thought some kids were actually drinking GROG. Maybe those kids might be coming to Monkey Island, Uruguay ("Isla del Mono" as we call it)  near the coast of Montevideo for treasure hunting next. They'll be welcome, but tell them not to feed the three-headed monkeys, though.

Posted by on Nov 5, 2009 five to eight am

I live in ARGENTINA and watched it LIVE. That EPIC FAIL is the funniest thing about our media! That's because they don't check out their information first...

I'll explain. It was a prank from some people from within C5N...

Thanks Ron for giving us the credit :P

Here in Argentina we keep playing your games... Guybrush is one of our mighty heroes, lol.

Posted by Maria on Nov 10, 2009 twenty to one pm

These so called journalists should worry about their own business. In what people's mind does it fit a drink like this?
If they had had another day to go on with this, Im sure they'd have prepared the drink on a live show for all to see. That would have been fun...

Anyway, please, don't think we're all idiots here in Argentina. But, yes, I do admit we have some bad, dont-check-the-info, yellow, sensationalist news channel.... Shame on you C5N.

Posted by LostTrainDude on Dec 9, 2009 five past four pm

Putting "Grog XD" in the TOMI Season Finale is pure f'n genious :)

Posted by Ngcrash on Dec 12, 2009 quarter to ten pm

Monkey Island was and still is one of the most loved games among oldschool Argentinan gamers.
Cormillot es un capo total, entr� como un caballo.

haha thank u, very nice blog

Posted by Leonardo on Jun 11, 2011 five past three pm

Something to mention: the news channel "C5N" is a part of the right-wing pro-USA multimedia network "infobae". They are always attacking the young people, workers, human rights organizations and all that smells like "popular". The "note" was a part of their daily attacks to the young people and their "moral". The owner of that channel is "Daniel Hadad". Google him. Thanks.

Just awesome... C5N=Fail... Awesome, really.
