Expectant couples constantly try to outdo one another on social media by exploring exciting new ways to throw genital, or rather “gender” reveal parties.
Some have gone as far as incorporating pyrotechnics, usually resulting in fatal consequences.
Thankfully, this recent stunt did not start wildfires, but it was still quite explosive.
YouTube prankster, Paige Ginn, trolled the popular fad by saying, “pfft.”
The social media starlet–best-known for epic prat-falls in public–tooted her own horn with an Instagram video in which she is seen naked from the waist down and lying on her stomach.
She clenched her teeth and released her announcement into the atmosphere by farting out a plume of putrid power that indicated the color of the baby’s gender to her 279K Instagram followers.
Spoiler alert: it was a cloudy blue emission that dissipated as quickly as it came.
And just like that, she smoked the gender reveal competition once and for all.
Party guests in the video responded jubilantly over Ginn’s back blast.

Over on social media, followers were both amused and impressed after witnessing the colorful cheek squeak.
People continued piling on the praise.
Not everyone was a fan. One person commented:
“Are you serious? This is discusting [sic] I can smell that through my phone.”

Another commenter shared her visceral reaction.
At least nobody was hurt.

In recent years, gender reveal parties evolved from cutting a piece of cake to announce the baby’s sex with blue or pink filling to the spectacle of using fireworks, explosives and airplanes.
In 2017, one father-to-be in Arizona shot a rifle into the air and inadvertently started a wildfire that burned 47,000-acres. The announcement of “it’s a boy” took a backseat to the news headlines that reported $8.2 million in damages.
Some announcements suffered tragic consequences.
In October, a woman in Iowa was killed as a result of flying debris from a pipe bomb her family built as part of their gender reveal party.
Keep it safe out there, folks.
No one dies if your gender reveals stink from a little personal methane plume.
