Hungarian weatherman fired after fart-filled wind forecast
BUDAPEST, Hungary — A Hungarian TV weatherman has been fired after giving a windy forecast some oomph with a range of fart sound effects.
Szilard Horvath used recorded bottom noises to animate a windy outlook earlier this month, but his performance appears to have fallen flat with his employers.
The TV2 channel, who hired the breezy forecaster last year to freshen up the weather slot, swiftly removed the offending clip from its website.
“If Mr Bean or Benny Hill farts, everyone laughs, but now a big deal is being made about this,” Horvath complained afterwards, admitting that the stunt was his idea.
“It’s turned out I can’t do the weather on TV2 anymore…I need to find work,” he posted on Facebook on Monday, alongside a “feeling broken” emoticon.
