With a name like South Park: Fractured But Whole, it’s pretty hard to be surprised that the game’s content and marketing are risqué. Yet just when you thought they were out of unique, audacious ways to push the envelope, Ubisoft and the South Park team unveil a surprise contest to find the perfect far.
Dubbed “I Am the Fart,” asks contestants to record themselves farting on video and then submit it as part of the contest.
In the first installment in the series, South Park: The Stick of Truth, farts were a deadly attack, especially when against Eric Cartman. South Park: Fractured But Whole will be doubling down on the fart jokes and Gaseous attacks, with one of their trailers even devoting a subplot or nickname of The Farting Vigilante.
As with all Democratic contests and elections, the Winner will be chosen by their peers. once chosen, they will be given the chance fly out to Ubisoft Studios in San Francisco, California to help produce the perfect in-game fart sounds.
Once in San Francisco, the prized farter will work with the team behind the game in order to record a unique fart noise that will then be added to South Park: The Fracture But Whole. Listed below is the contest’s winner.
