Let it rip: Hospital security guard who filmed all his farts for 6 months while at work gets fired
Everyone has their own unique likes, dislikes, and passions. While some are normal things like collecting items or cooking, a man decided it would be a great idea to document and make a compilation of his farts and upload it to social media.
The man's name is Doug and he has taken to Instagram to share a rather personal side of himself. As Vice reports, the internet knows the passionate farter by his Instagram handle which goes by the name of Paul Flart. Doug was working as a security guard at a Florida hospital when he consciously decided to film and record himself letting it rip. However, as a result of his passion, he was fired from his job.
He explained that the series of videos of him farting all began when he noticed that the hospital lobbies had some amazing acoustics. He shared, "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". His friends encouraged him to share the videos and post it on the internet and the group started to brainstorm for names.
As the months went by, he slowly began amassing many followers but once all his hard work made its way to Reddit, he became a unique celebrity. Of course, the videos also got some unwanted attention from his workplace and he was let go of his job. He even started to live stream on Instagram and announced that he was very likely to get fired. The thing is, he was not fired due to the content of the videos at all.
He was fired because he was not supposed to be using his phone while on duty and he sure as hell was not supposed to be recording himself while in uniform on a private company property. Getting fired is not going hold Doug back and he plans to work on merchandise and also music videos.
"We live in a society where this is the big popular thing right now, but next week, unless I'm doing more than keeping it going, it's going to be nothing," he explained. "We’re going to keep making content. We can do Paul Flart on vacation, you know, throw in like a Hawaiian shirt and a hat of some sort and then just fart around Florida. We’re just going to keep going," he added.
