Record company breaks contract. Artist breaks wind.
How can one small, mobile and not-very-intelligent unit fight the blast-door of lawyers that protect the world’s largest media company?
Many musicians and artists have faced the same problem, but few have worked their butts off quite like this to find a solution – fart outside the offices of their nemesis and post the video on YouTube.
Punk Sanderson, author of a series of semi-fictional exposes of the music industry, has filmed his protest: Fart For Your Rights!
“It’s like the Occupy Movement, only smellier. We’ve called bankers, politicians and ‘phone-hackers to account – now it’s time for major record labels. They trample over musicians’ rights and rather than owning up and offering fair settlement, reach for expensive lawyers. It would cost over £300,000 to fight them in the courts – who’s got that kind of money?”
So, armed with a battery of slogans – “Fart For Farts Sake,” “All You Need Is Wind,” “With A Little Fart From Your Friends” – the intention is to encourage Dinosaur Inc to own up, get ethical and improve business practices.
“The major record labels are happy enough chasing college kids who infringe their own copyrights. This campaign blows them towards taking their own copyright abuse seriously.
Any artist can join the protest, get the iFart app on their phone, and blast away in meetings with their record label. Or just trigger it anyway. We are on the scent of something big.”
All Punk’s found-sounds are of organic origin.
In the latest issue of Rolling Stone, George Clooney talks candidly on flatulation and iFart.
Even the idea of a fart makes me laugh,” he tells the magazine. “Saying the word ‘fart’ makes me laugh. I have iFart on my phone. I have remote whoopee cushions. Farts. To me, there’s nothing funnier.”
The story seems to have some real lingering power as other media outlets are picking up the scent.
In honor of George’s love of farts I’ve created an honorary movie fart pack for him.
- The DeScentants
- The Ides Of Stench
- The American (honestly George.. that movie stunk)

- O Brother, Who Fart Now?
and because I’m a fan I deliberately left out “Return of the Killer Burritos”.
It’s been awhile since the last iFart update, but over the summer we felt an idea rumbling and decided it was time for a big release.
So we’re pleased to announce our iFart Social Update.
You can now use our Social Fart Icon to share the wonders of the World Famous iFart app with friends, family and important business contacts.
If you’re going to post on Facebook that you just had a burrito for lunch, why not create a more realistic update by sharing “Burrito Maximo” from our fart wheel?
