At first this just stinks, and then it’s music to your ears.

A comedy duo from Australia called the Shonky Brothers have turned some flatulence into a “7-tone fart symphony.”

One of the brothers named Loz, recently farted, and the two realized there was something very special about it.

When the audio is slowed down, as demonstrated in the video above, it becomes recognizable as a major seventh arpeggio in the key of B flat.

It’s “the greatest fart I ever did,” Loz writes in the video.

You can listen to the final product below, which he calls his “Magnum Anus,” and even make it your ringtone!

Music Video of the Day: Belgium’s Stromae Warns About Twitter, Consumerism

Popular Belgian musician Stromae (aka Paul Van Haver) has a released a new video for his song “Carmen” which turns Twitter into a terrifying monster.

“Those fake smiles cut like a #. Watch yourself out there,” he says in the song. “Network friends and followers? No, no you’re just popular.”

It’s a reworking of “Habanera” from the opera Carmen, in which love is compared to a bird. He took that idea and made a version about Twitter.

The song is a commentary on how social media dominates our lives, and ironically he is promoting the new video on an Instagram account which he started a few weeks ago. It was directed by Sylvain Chomet, who worked on both “Triplets of Belleville” and “The Illusionist.”

“I’m not so radical about Twitter, but I think it’s sometimes dangerous if you think that Twitter is real life,” he told Time Out in an interview last year.

Stromae has a huge following in Europe and he is also popular with some world leaders, as both Nicolas Sarkozy and Barack Obama apparently own copies of one of his albums.

Here’s another of his hits called “Formidable,” which you may be familiar with. In the video, he walks around the streets of Brussels pretending to be drunk.

Win of the Day: Australian Busker Battles Homophobic Preacher With Music

Australian musician Axel Winter was getting ready to perform at Sydney Mardi Gras last weekend, when he noticed a man with a Bible spewing anti-gay rhetoric on the street.

“He was saying hateful things towards gay people themselves. He said at one point ‘today is the day that god hates you most,'” he told Gay Star News.

So he decided to fight back, by drowning out the man’s words with music.

Axel and some other musicians near the Pitt Street Mall set up their things and started playing Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” as the crowd cheered them on.

At one point he even took some liberties with the lyrics singing “some boys take a beautiful boy and they hide her away from the rest of the world.”

The plan worked, and eventually the preacher left.

Winter says he was raised a Christian, but he thinks everyone should be treated with respect.

“Thank you Sydney for taking a stand for equality,” he wrote on Facebook. “Whether you’re homosexual or transgender or even just confused, you’re still my friend.”

Being stuck on a plane is not fun, but having a barbershop quartet on board can definitely help.

A US Airways flight from Indianapolis to New Orleans was delayed due to maintenance issues last month and everyone got grumpy, as one does in that situation.

But a flight attendant named Kari Mann discovered that four of the passengers were part of a singing group called Port City Sound.

She asked them to sing for everyone and posted a video of the moment on YouTube.

“The mood changed and our passengers were awesome for the whole five hours they were on the plane,” she said. “One of my favorite moments!”

The video of their rendition of “Under the Boardwalk” has since racked up over 3 million views.

“We never thought that four guys singing on an airplane would generate so much interest,” said Port city Sound member Jim Simpson.

Misheard Lyrics of the Day: People Think ‘All About That Bass’ Kidz Bop Cover is ‘Bringing Anal Back’

Favorite

In 2014 Taylor Swift told us about her “Starbuck Lovers,” and now Kidz Bop is “bringing anal back.”

The latest misheard lyrics come from a cover of children singing Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass.”

The original line from the song says “I’m bringing it all back,” but some people are hearing something else entirely.



The best part of this is that Kidz Bop tries so hard to turn these pop songs into G-rated tunes for children, often with some pretty ridiculous results.

In 2009, parents mistakenly thought they heard the F-word in a Kidz Bop cover of Gavin DegRaw’s “I Don’t Wanna Be.”
