OK, so maybe this isn’t the going to end global warming or move anyone away from needing foreign oil, but there is definitely no shortage of gas in this video.

That’s right, I’m referring the to the infamous Japanese Farting contests. Hundreds of people gather in a (hopefully well ventilated) auditorium where they consume large amounts of sweet potatoes and dairy products. Then, as they get ready to toot, contestants rush towards a microphone and let loose. Farts are measured by a sound meter for tone, volume and length. In the end, the winner gets cash, prizes, fame, and probably a new pair of tighty whities.
