Flatufonia—or the musical anus. If this was a real video of a fart, the fart would be white not black. This is a video of someone with a can of compressed air. It looks like an airport security officer mucking around with confiscated aerosols and expensive security equipment. The dark fingers vs light arms would indicate that darkness is colder than the lighter shades, therefore the gas is cold, and looks like it is of an inordinate volume for someone not doubled over in agony and experiencing intestinal distress.
Not mentioned is the different source foods of the farts. I postulate that a tuna and broccoli fart is far more toxic than others, not matter what clothing shield you wear. Experts in fartology they surely are not! I propose a law to ban 2nd hand fart air from all indoor public places. If they must constantly pass gas, then attach a vaporizer to their rear ends.
I remember when I was little I would throw my food in the garbage if someone farted in the same room from which I was eating. Maybe that was some sort of primal instinct lost by most. More likely you picked it up from an uptight family member. Really I was concerned that the smell would somehow get on my food and would make it taste like fart. Sorry, that is an old video routinely used at Thermography classes. Love that so many people are concerned with the technical details of the vid.
I laughed so hard I farted a little. When he had to sneeze, he turned his head away from the table and covered his mouth. The entire family, Mom, Dad and the kids, got up from the table unable to eat their meal in the presence of a sneeze. Turning away ignores the possibility that a violent sneeze could cause recoil action at the other end. Or the number of rooms a nurse or orderly might enter where the sick occupants are experiencing higher than average intestinal distress. What of sick children in poorer areas of the world who are allowed to run around naked?

You see, it turns out the panic response when a tarantula is crawling on your leg or the like is exactly what is happening in your brain and body when you are getting tickled. It is thought that this is a defense mechanism for exactly this type of thing where an external touch, such as a venomous insect crawling on you or the like, might be occurring.
The body needs to react quickly to this unanticipated touch and without time for much conscious thought, so produces the panic reaction. In this case, it more closely resembles actual panic reactions, rather than having associated laughter. In any event, the same exact thing is thought to be happening with farts. Your brain knows you just farted, so at least partially tunes out the smell. That said, when another person farts and you definitely know they just did before the smell hits you, it still seems to smell worse.
First, there may be an element of confirmation bias going on here. But, much like certain viruses and the like can be transmitted via coughs, pathogens like streptococcus pyogenes can be transmitted to you via an improperly filtered fart where the poop particles are peregrinating through the air, perhaps ultimately ending up in your nose, throat or lungs. Your brain is seemingly built to be keenly aware of this danger and so goes ahead and reacts more negatively to said odoriferous odor from an external source, just in case, motivating you to want to leave the stinky zone or at least hold your breath for a bit while the air clears out.
