A British inventor has finally realised his dream of firing a ‘fart gun’ out of a massive model bum towards France.
Colin Furze, who has gained internet fame by super-powering mobility scooters and creating a toilet you can drive, wanted to see if he could create something loud enough that the French could hear it.
After many hours in his shed he created a pulse jet and fixed it to a giant model bum (because pulse jets sound like farts, apparently).
A crowd of people turned out to watch him fire the machine from the cliffs of Dover at the unsuspecting French, while an accomplice across the Channel confirmed a ‘muffled mumbling’ could be heard from across the water.
The crazy stunt has even been given its own theme tune after British punk band March to the Grave recorded the song fart@thefrench to honour Furze’s achievement.
Furze, whose day job is as a plumber, has amassed more than half a million subscribers to his YouTube channel.
