Watch This Metalhead Hand-Fart Gojira’s ‘Flying Whales’ to Gojira
French art-metal band films fan as he performs their song in Israeli record shop
Hope for faux-flatulists and metalheads alike: French death-thrash giants Gojira visited Tel Aviv’s Metalshop record store to sign some autographs when they met Guy First, an Israeli fan with a very unusual talent. The band ceded the spotlight to him, even whipping out their phones in order to film his peculiar cover of their 2005 song, “Flying Whales.” First’s instrument of choice? Why two hands cupped together in a manner that’s most commonly used to imitate the sound of passing gas.
While he didn’t attempt to imitate the haunted cries of the actual beasts sampled on the original From Mars to Sirius standout, a little toe-tap helped give the “Flying Farts” version a more, ahem, solid form. Watch First do his thing above, via Blabbermouth, while Gojia looks on, clearly impressed if not downright delighted. Revisit his source material below, and dig up last year’s art-metal opus L’Enfant Sauvage as well.
