Artist's Description

Is your backside chock full of gas? Is it always emitting an annoying and if you are as emencely popular as myself embarressing? Not that being “popular” is embarressing but the thought of that unwanted flatulance. Even if you don’t have all your friends (and a few certain strangers) all in the one room and in the dead of night you happen to let one slip. Even a tiny tune in bed beside your love one (or two, if you are having one of “those” nights) is bound to be a source for amusement, if not a bit of embarressment on your part from the part of you that is behind you. If “summer breeze” made Seals and Croft “feel fine” the same cannot be said if you had a certain herbed and spiced chicken before you went to bed as in the dead of night that dark silent bedroom of yours gets filled with the gas and smell that made the chicken famous and your arse equally as glorious as you have released it. Like a virgin you have the same amount of disgust and loathing as you lye beside your lover and attempt not to notice as she gets all the enjoyment out of the experience and you are left with the fall out. Trying not to remember the smell in your next intimate encounter may be hard. Especially if she happens to do it whilst you two do do it. Then as it’s going to be a rough night for you. especially if you have been privy to alot of farting from your partner when your own bum hasn’t even said a word.

Well like a paper-mache bum that is strapped to the end of several helium balloons floating several metres into the air, our bum is up! So what better way to lift the spirits of a boring converluted 21’st birthday party by releasing this piece of artistic wonder into the night sky. Yes, you and a few (for the time, close) pissed friends can end up gathering all the balloons from the room ceiling and go onto the balcony and taking everyone attention that’s into the room to that said balcony you get about fifty odd people chanting and clappng on this (Artist’s impression) only to watch the balloon struggle on the weight of the balloons that for most of the night had a volume of the air sucked out as you made silly pitched sentences from your voice and your brain full of the helium. Only for months later to perform life changing and pathetically stupid acts that find you all alone and vagrant from the totally out of character performance that made you wake up alone one day from the dream that this concept’s inseption is now a distant memory.
