In Which iFart

Everyone has heard of the iPhone by now, but have you heard of the popular iPhone application called iFart? It is a small program that lets you dial up various fart sounds of different length and relative wetness. It is a widely popular app, being the number one downloaded application through Apple's AppStore for over three weeks. 

Because of it's popularity, the company that designed iFart is hosting a contest to see who can come up with the best YouTube commercial for it. The grand prize is $5k, with the second and third place being a MacBook and an iPod Touch respectively. 

I've never made a video before, but I thought I'd try my hand at it. With nothing to lose, The Boss and I went down to Boston this past weekend, and got some footage from a couple of different places around town. I spliced everything together, added some sound effects and some music that I wrote, and came up with this:


Part of the contest is judged upon how many views the video gets, what its rating is, and how many comments it gets. If you can, please click here to go to it's YouTube page to rate and comment.

Feel free to pass this along to your family and friends and ask them to do the same! I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed making it.

At the point where the acrobat is moving his legs up in the air; you could not have timed that better.

Seriously, my kids (the 33 year old included) would LOVE this....

Thanks for the laugh

Oh I can't wait to watch it, but I'll have to behave and do it at home. My work desk is a fishbowl and I want to appreciate it in the right environment!

Lola said...

Oh, so that's why you wanted me to meet you guys! Hmmmm...

There is nothing not-awesome about the iFart. Nothing.

Heather said...

I rated and commented, and I have to say, yours was waaaay better than the other ones I saw. Now we just have to get enough people to view yours.

MadWoman said...

Hahaha! That was fantastical! The spawnlets giggled like crazy and you had Hotty Hubby doing a full on belly laugh! I'm super impressed!

Moonspun said...

Because I am such a good mother, lil moonspun and I watched together. I thought it was hilarious and very well done! I like the colonial dude and the cop.
Lil moonspun heartily approves, too

Honey, you are a winner with me. I nearly wet my pants watching that....the first, second and third time.

Jenn(ifer): Glad you enjoyed it!

SPD: I agree.

A Brand Name: That was pure luck, getting that footage.

Maggie May: Yay! Thanks!

Moonspun: Glad to hear that you and Lil' enjoyed it!

Lola: Exactly. I wanted to sneak a video of you breaking wind.

Aunt Becky: I totally agree. It is just genius.

Heather: Thanks! I'm trying to figure out ways of promoting the video more.

MadWoman: Spawnlets?

Cape Cod Gal: I knew you'd enjoy it!

Heather said...

Free traffic exchange? I think I've mentioned those before. You surf and view other people's sites in exchange for them viewing yours. Gotta have good virus protection though.

Bee and Rose said...

Props to you Badass Geek! My son has emailed all his friends to watch this! Hilarious!

Lola said...

You dirty bastard!

Badass Geek said...

Heather: Yeah, I dunno. I check into it.

Bee and Rose: Glad you and your son enjoyed it!

Lola: Yes. Yes, I am.
