The Terrible Mr. G

What happens when you play Counterstrike too much? You end up with a potty mouth. And some enemies:

So, the story goes that co-worker A got sick of co-worker B’s constant profanity whilst playing Counter Strike. Co-worker A then hid a microphone next to co-worker B’s desk, and captured this stream of rantings. Then, as co-worker A was a member of an electronic music-making concern, he endeavored to edit it all together. The end result was this: The Terrible Mr. G.

I highly recommend the song above to anyone who has played/knows someone who plays/heard someone play Counterstrike (via my first mine).

Its too damn funny!! Just imagining someone sitting there saying all this, and ive seen this at home getting fustrated over a game, I would love to know the response of the person this was made of.

  7. This is what the internet was made for. The idea is funny, but the execution is BRILLIANCE. All that carefull arrangement…. It made me happier than I’ve been in a long time. I too wonder what Mr G thought of it….

  8. Hey, I actually know Mr. Grimshaw. I can’t believe he’s this big internet superstar loser now.

    Actually, I take that back. He’s the only person I know who can sit in his cubical all day playing Counter Strike (poorly) and become famous at it.

    Years ago, I went to a movie theater with him while he was carrying a whole bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken. They let him it while he was stuffing his face with an extra crispy drum stick. I try to walk it with a half empty bottle of water and they tell me I have to leave my drink outside!

  9. so fucking funny. I’m addicted to it. I listen to it like once a day, all the time laughing hysterically. I think it’s starting to piss ppl off. MOTHER FUCK!

  10. Both the song and video are hysterical.
    If there were only more videos like this where people are just losing it totally then maybe it would be worth it to pay extra for DSL.

    I want to see someone get so mad at a stupid video game that he throws his keyboard/mouse/tower across the room. That would be a true “money shot.”

  11. Heeeee-ha! howdy guys from your cowboy fan ! i really loved your site and found it to be very friendly and helpfull. here’s a nice hgh link for you pals: HGH – HGH rules!

  12. Doesn’t have to be only HalfLife either: still applicabile, years later, to :

    – Halo
    etc.

  13. As a CS 1.6 and CS:S player that was just FUCKING awsome lol. Keep up the good work…… d-(^’^)>

  14. Hi, I’m the person who created this recording. I only just saw this thread today after doing a Google search on “The Terrible Mr. Grimshaw”. I’ll respond to some of the comments here:

    First – Glad so many of you liked it. I can tell you that I had trouble even making the thing because I was laughing so hard.

    Second – Here’s the story: The protagonist in this song is named Trevor Grimshaw. He’s honestly a great guy, but man he would get worked up at lunch and 6PM when the team played CS together. He and I worked at a video game company, and I worked RIGHT fuckign NEXT to him. And get this: I’m an audio guy. That’s right, I have to make music and sound, and I had Trevor on the other side of one piece of half-inch sheetrock. It wasn’t so much the sheer noise as the psychological fight-or-flight experience of getting SCREAMED at like, every 57 seconds. I’d be listening carefully to some sound, and then “AAAAH GOD DAMMIT!!”…

    I asked him to knock it off, but honestly, I don’t think he could. He really intended to, I think, but it was beyond his ability to refrain.

    I placed a microphone INSIDE MY OFFICE (note: No bugging or invasive recording techniques were used: this was what I heard in MY office), with the door open instead of closed, like it usually was. I recorded every lunch for about three weeks. Eventually I had enough material and cut each exclamation up into separate .wav files. I think perhaps the funniest thing was the directory listing from that folder, which looked something like this:

    dammit41.wav
    dammit42.wav
    dammit43.wav
    dammit44.wav
    dammit45.wav
    dammit46.wav
    dammit47.wav
    FUCK!01.wav
    FUCK!02.wav
    FUCK!03.wav

    … etc…

    I carefully (and, if I say so myself, artfully) placed the speech bits over some really crappy techno tracks that I laid down one day when I was testing out a new version of Acid. When I was done, I gave the song to only THREE PEOPLE in my company: Trevor and two of our friends. I did NOT distribute it out into the Internet. GUESS WHO DID?? Yup. Within 24 hours, Trevor managed to get the song listed everywhere, even Penny Arcade mentioned it!

    The song had the intended result: It got the president of the company to make sure that SOMEONE had enough words with Trevor that he stopped screaming outside my office. I felt bad to clip his wings like that, but I think his brief internet infamy more than made up for it in his mind.

    Third – Here are a few repsonses to things in this thread:

    – The video called “thevox.wmz” is not related to Mr. Grimshaw in any way I know of. That person is not Trevor. There is no video to this song that I know of. If so, I’ve never seen it and I didn’t make it.

    – Tim: I would agree with you, but you have to understand: Making this song was an act of desperation on my part!

    – Dona: Like I said: Mr. G LOVED it. He is the one who got it all over the Internet.

  15. After study a few of the blog posts on the website now, and i also truly like your technique of blogging. I bookmarked it to my bookmark website list and will also be checking back soon. Pls have a look at my internet site too and tell me what you consider.

  16. Hi there. When i organized lower which you rapid notice to say each of our many thanks. I am upon present-day internet site to secure a weeks time somewhere around and still have snapped up plenty of great ideas simultaneously since appreciated exactly how you have got organized your current web-site. We’re also planning to perform my own web site having said that I’m the overly general we must aim added on more compact issues. Turning into most problems to everyone prospective buyers is just not every thing it is chipped nearly be. Take note!

  17. That’s a fantastic way to stage an intervention. Imagine if we could do that for every vice which people have then throw it in their face/share it with the internet.
