The reporter with a mechanic shows how to steal petrol.
Greek state television is being mocked after showing viewers how to syphon petrol as prices soared on some holiday islands to 2.50 euros a litre.
“It’s not something terribly complicated,” explained morning news reporter Costas Stamou, “even a hose for (cleaning) balconies will do.”
A helpful mechanic then showed the best places to pierce a car’s tank to drain it of its contents.
The segment sparked horror and hilarity, with one Twitter user joking, “After the tutorial on ways to steal gasoline, ERT is now preparing new how-tos on opening locks and stealing wallets.”
