DOVER, England, July 24 (UPI) -- A British inventor constructed a giant butt that he plans to use to launch an explosive fart at France on July 24.

Colin Furze plans to launch the fart with a propulsion device called a valveless pulse jet around 6 p.m. British time from a beach in Dover. He hopes that the gigantic buttocks will release a noise that "can be heard in another country across 21 miles of water."

"This is the construction of the 16-foot-tall metal ass that does look like an ass which surprised me as my sculpture skills in the past have been terrible," Furze wrote with a YouTube video showing the building of the butt.

Furze already has more than 530,000 YouTube subscribers and this noisy stunt will likely net him a few more.

"If the wind is blowing from England to France they stand a very good chance of hearing it," he said.

The fart machine, which runs on gas, has been recorded at more than 140 decibels.

"I don't have anything against French people. This is not an attack at France at all, it's just that they're our closest neighbors. If Norway was a bit closer then we'd be farting at them," Furze said, according to the CBC.
