The flatulent security guard went viral for filming himself farting at work for the past six months. He dutifully recorded his toots on Instagram, and then blew up on Reddit on Tuesday when someone posted a fart compilation.
The post even inspired a compilation of his expulsions arranged in order of length, which one Redditor called”the Sistine Chapel of fart videos.”
Unfortunately, the newfound fame cost Paul Flart his job. In an Instagram Live video, Paul Flart — whose real name is Doug — recorded himself getting fired. It wasn’t his actual farting that got him dismissed, but the fact that he recorded himself on the job.
“It’s come to our attention that you recorded yourself, wearing that uniform, on our client’s property,” his supervisor says.
When Doug pointed out that none of his videos showed any logos or identifying details about the workplace, his supervisor handed him the official write up.
Then Doug turns to the camera and shrugs, “That’s it, we lost the job, guys.”
As his now former supervisor berates him for recording on private property, Doug keeps going: “Please stay tuned, I appreciate all of you.”
So what’s Doug going to do next? He told Vice that he has Paul Flart merchandise in the works. Helpful Redditors encouraged him to contact Jimmy Kimmel and get a manager.
Doug is ready to hustle for his farts, telling Vice that “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 also hinted at making themed fart content.
“We can do Paul Flart on vacation, you know, throw in like a Hawaiian shirt and a hat of some sort,” he said. “And then just fart around Florida.”
