Is it possible to escape the smell of a fart?

Get away from my nose


The releasing of a fart into the atmosphere can cause unrivalled chaos.

Nobody wants to be the person that drops the stink, but once it’s out there, invading nostrils and generally upsetting everyone in the surrounding area, there are two choices: stick it out and become stronger for it, or try and get the hell out of there as fast as you can.

But is it even possible to do the latter? Can you actually outrun a fart?

It’s one of those questions that just seems like the perfect fit for a descriptive animation thought up by much smarter people than us, don’t you think?

Luckily, Youtubers AsapSCIENCE have done exactly that.
