A hospital security guard who filmed his farts at work for six MONTHS has been sacked. Florida-based Doug runs The Fart Authority Instagram page which he regularly updates with videos of himself flatuating.
In the repetitive footage, Doug faces the camera and lets off wind on cue, and bizarrely his 28,000 followers absolutely love it.
He told Vice : “The lobby has really great acoustics, and naturally, we all fart.
“One day I ripped a rather nice one and got really good sound from it, so the next time it happened I recorded it and sent it to my group chat.”
Doug said his friends loved it and suggested he take his toilet humour to social media.
On March 25 he posted his first bottom burp to Instagram.
He goes by the pseudonym Paul Flart, which appears to be reference to the hit film Paul Blart: Mall Cop.
For six months, he farted through his shifts at the hospital, publishing each pop for a small but loyal crowd that grew to 500 Instagram followers.
But then his fan base exploded and soon after his account went viral, Doug was fired from his job at the hospital.
Unfortunately, he had violated company policy which prohibits using phones on the job “an unusually high amount of times”, and when asked to stop, he said no.
Doug also filmed himself wearing his security guard uniform on private property, which is also against the hospital’s rules.
But he says people from around the world contact him every day, claiming the videos bring them joy and happiness.
“I’m all about that,” he said.
Doug is now making Paul Flart merchandise and music videos. Oh dear!
