security guard working the front desk at a hospital in Florida was recording his farts on intstagram, every time he let one rip, he recorded his facial expression. Then he posted the videos to his Instagram account under the name "Paul Flart" . . . which is a "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" reference.
Earlier this week, someone posted a two-minute montage of the videos online, and it blew up on Reddit. So he's 'Internet famous' now. Then yesterday, he live-streamed himself getting FIRED for it.
His boss at the hospital wasn't happy about all the attention. Especially because some of the videos show the hospital logo in the background.
Technically, they fired him for using his phone too much at work. And he didn't even try to argue. He just refused to stop live-streaming while they fired him.
But Doug's not sweating it. He says his plan now is to just, quote, "run with this" and see where it goes. And he's already making "Paul Flart" merchandise.
Here he is getting fired
