Yesterday was nine years since the release of the demos P.T.the horror game written by Hideo Kojima in collaboration with the director Guillermo del Toro to revive the Silent Hill series, which was canceled by Konami despite the great success due to the complete break with Kojima. Del Toro wanted to celebrate in his own way, sending to that country the Japanese company in Latin.
More precisely, del Toro took the “Fuck Konami” meme and latinized it, while quoting Catullus. Echoing a post by VGC on X, which reminded PT, he wrote: “Ah … Konami … what to tell you? Irrumabo Konamitus.”
The word Konamitus should be clear enough to everyone, while Irrumabo is a bit more complicated and vulgar. According to the Latin Wiktionary, Irrumabo comes from Irrumo, which means: “(vulgar) to rape (orally), to fuck in the mouth, to stick (the penis) in (someone’s) mouth”.
As we said, it is probable that del Toro also wanted to quote Catullus. The word Irrumabo is in fact used in the notorious and famous Carme 16, one of the best known of his obscene carmina, where we can read: “Pedicabo ego vos et irrumabo, Aureli pathice et cinaede Furi” which is translated into: “Io a voi ve I put it in the ass and in the mouth, Aurelio fennel and Furio pederast.”
Hatred for Konami
PT hinted at the arrival of a great Silent Hill horror
Evidently, despite nine years having passed, del Toro has not yet digested the cancellation of Silent Hills, so much so that he has not hesitated to attack Konami in such a direct and derogatory way. Kojima has been increasingly calm about it, in the sense that he has never indulged in such utterances. It must be said, however, that he remained in the video game industry, while del Toro has stated several times that he will never work there again. So he has freer hands.
