As you may have heard, Ubisoft is running a contest for South Park: The Fractured But Whole in which the winners will have their farts featured in the game. It’s a rather unconventional contest, but in order to win you’ll have to be on the top of your flatulence game. Thankfully you don’t have to figure this out alone, though, as Mr. Methane himself has some tips for aspiring fart actors.
Mr. Methane gives some aspiring advice via the Ubi Blog:
“Be yourself,” he says, “Make your farts fit your character, be comfortable in them and let them express who you are and what you want to say.” He also feels that diet and fitness are a factor: “Staying farting fit is most important. You have to strain hard in this business if you want to be Number 2.” What about warm-up exercises? “Yes definitely, you have to stretch and warm up the major muscle groups to avoid injury – it’s exactly like a being pro sportsman.” And how should one go about preparing for a big event? “Be fit, be switched on, but be relaxed at the same time – it sounds contradictory but once you’ve had one or two goes at performance-flatulism it’ll all make sense.”
Another key factor is avoiding the follow-through. “It’s all about knowing when to stop as you’re holding that last note,” explains Methane, “so that you don’t go all the way and catch a bear in the net. That comes from feel, which comes from experience which comes from practice.”
“Proper farting,” he adds, “is a discipline.”
Mr. Methane is well known for his incredible farting abilities, performing musical… methane oriented pieces. If anyone knows anything about farting, it’s him, so it’s worth reading the entire Ubi Blog article if you’re planning on entering!
South Park: The Fractured But Whole will release October 17 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The I Am The Fart contest will run until October 16.
