Netflix's The Witcher, if you somehow were not already aware, has recently been celebrating "Witchmas" over on social media by releasing interesting odds and ends over the past week like an interview with Roach, Geralt's horse, and a behind-the-scenes blooper reel. At the time, the indication was that this was a choice of what to see every single day, but now that that is over... Netflix has unleashed the flood gates and shared everything that it had been teasing. That includes, but is not limited to, a montage of Geralt grunting "hmm" in various languages.
Technically, the video includes other dialogue, but it's still very funny to see the various versions of Geralt -- all played by Henry Cavill, but voiced by different folks in various dubs -- grunting in a similar way. One assumes that the grunts aren't all just Cavill, but considering that they are just grunts and grumbles it can be... hard to tell.
In the spirit of #Witchmas, I have hidden some of the unclaimed gifts around the Basement Lab.
Do tell when you find them! https://t.co/funIjosqy0— The Witcher (@witchernetflix) December 22, 2020
