A man named Kyle Theobald created the animation “for a good friend for his birthday.” Rick Astley was born on Feb. 6, so could this be an early present for the man himself? Perhaps.
Theobald does make sure to give credit for the fart sounds. Those come from manualist Gerry Phillips. For those of you who aren’t music aficionados, a manualist is someone who’s really really good at making fart noises with their hands.
