"A group of no-goods have threatened to remove my starring member if I don't pay them off. They threatened the wrong man, amigo. They have a weakness for the ice cream. Pick up the bomb I've hidden in Harwood, hijack the regular ice cream van on its rounds, and lure these fools to their doom with the jeengle-jeengle."
El Burro

I Scream, You Scream is a mission in Grand Theft Auto III given to protagonist Claude by Diablos leader El Burro from a payphone in the Hepburn Heights area of Portland Island, Liberty City.


Claude answers a payphone in Hepburn Heights and El Burro tells Claude that a rival gang (Forellis) are threatening to remove a starring member of an adult movie unless they get a cut. El Burro instructs Claude to pick up a bomb in Harwood and then hijack a Mr. Whoopee ice cream van and blow them up at their Atlantic Quays hideout.

Claude collects the bomb, which is located around the corner at the Borgnine Taxis building. Claude then hijacks the Mr. Whoopee ice cream van and attaches the bomb to the vehicle. After heading to the Atlantic Quays warehouse hideout, Claude turns on the horn to start the 'jeengle-jeengle'. The gang members walk out and are killed when Claude presses the detonator.

  • This mission was originally intended to be given out by the removed character Darkel. Instead of gang members, the original target would be innocent pedestrians.[1] Darkel was eventually removed from the game and the mission was given to El Burro.
  • Like in the mission Dead Skunk in the Trunk, The Forellis have the same game model character as the Leones.
  • The name of the mission is a pun with the word "Ice Cream", "I Scream" and "Ice Cream" has a very similar pronunciation. It can also be a reference to the 1986 movie Down by Law, which features a scene where the protagonists sings a song called "I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream".
  • This mission can be completed without blowing up Mr. Whoopee. Just shoot down all gang members. This can be seen here.
