Popular Fitness Instructor Accidentally Lets Out Massive Fart During Workout Livestream Watched By 800,000 People Joe Wicks/YouTube

A popular British fitness instructor left nearly 800,000 viewers in tears of laughter (and shock!) after he accidentally let out a massive fart at the beginning of one of his popular PE lessons. Joe Wicks, who’s been hosting livestreamed workouts for kids on his YouTube channel since the UK lockdown began in March 2020, resumed the lessons this week as the four nations went into new restrictions. However, he didn’t realize he was broadcasting when he relieved himself of some pretty gnarly wind at the beginning of his latest lesson.

  1. Well, that was some fart! Is it immature to laugh at farts? Yes, obviously. Is it still really hilarious and will I laugh at farts forever? You bet! Wicks wasn’t on camera when he let one rip, which almost makes it more hilarious. And let me tell you, that was a seriously mighty wind, so to speak!
  2. Wicks didn’t realize he was streaming. Talking with Mark Wright on his radio show after the incident went viral, Wicks insisted he had no idea he was streaming and found the whole thing mortifying. “I’m so embarrassed by what’s happened,” he said. “I pressed the live button on my YouTube stream, and just before, I’m talking 20 seconds before, something slipped out Mark… and you can guess what it will be Mark… “
  3. He insists his farts aren’t usually so loud. He added to Wright: “So I’ve let out this giant – honestly, the longest ripper I’ve ever let out in my life. I didn’t realize it was live, so I’ve done the ripper-oo, five, four, three, two, one, I jumped in and I only found out today when I saw a link asking: ‘Did The Body Coach just let an almighty ripper off before his PE with Joe Workout?'” Hilarious!
  4. He’s since edited the fart out. For those who can’t make it to Wicks’ PE classes live, they’re always archived on his YouTube channel to watch on demand. However, if you’re hoping to hear the fart before you get your sweat on, you’ll come up short because he’s edited it out of the video on his channel now. Thankfully, plenty of other people have uploaded the hilarious moment.
