This is the most epically terrible-slash-hilarious way to lose a bet.

This group of friends was at the gym, weightlifting, having some fun, when they decided to make things interesting. They bet one of their friends that he couldn't complete a bench press. If he did it, they'd give him $20.

The friend in question was very confident he could do it. That's what makes his downfall all the more spectacular.

Twitter user @mheaden31 couldn't have possibly predicted what was about to happen when he started recording this video:


I don't know what's better: the guy's fart, or the subsequent screaming laughter from his friends. But truly, if there was ever a more well-timed fart in the history of the world, I don't know what it is. Honestly, I'd give him the $20 just for that.

What a great way to start the weekend.
