We all know that a public library is place for quiet study and peaceful reflection – so when some bastard lets rip with a huge wet fart it’s bound to raise a few eyebrows.

The team at Smooth Pranks have put together a hilarious viral video in which a scruffy dude fakes an appalling outbreak of ass-gas in front of bemused members of the public.

Their reactions are priceless as the joker embarks upon a rampage of flatulence. Worse still, he then denies being the culprit and accuses some of his fellow library users of being responsible.

“Who farted. That was disgusting. Who did that shit – was it you?” he asks. “One of you guys did it. I heard it – it’s gross.”

Our favorite is the girl who collapses in giggles at the end.

Childish? – Yes. Crude? – Yes. F***ing hilarious? – You bet.
