The security guard who went viral for recording himself farting at his desk for months is now looking for a new job after his famous gas got him canned.
Doug, AKA Paul Flart, tells The Blast he got the boot Thursday morning from his job as a security guard at a hospital in Polk County, Florida. Doug explains that his boss’ son saw his viral videos and alerted his father, who intercepted Doug in the hospital parking lot and fired him on the spot.
Doug says the fart phenomenon started one night when he let one rip while working his job at the hospital’s front desk, and the “acoustics in the room were so good,” that he kept delivering.
After Doug shared the videos with his friends, he was encouraged to start an Instagram account, and the rest is history. For 6 months he recorded himself farting at his desk, and says he never got busted.
Doug says he’s not mad at his former employers, even though he never identified his place of business, and he does not plan on taking any sort of action for a wrongful termination.
As for his next step, Doug says he just launched his YouTube page, and is toying with getting into comedy. No celebrities have reached out yet, but he’s hoping to hear from Jimmy Kimmel.
