Very hard to think of a precedent for this one…
The Sydney Morning Herald reports the Seven Network has admitted to reducing the volume of a character’s flatulence in the premiere episode of Wild Boys.
In the series promo a scene where Daniel MacPherson and Michael Dorman’s characters are thrown in jail, a fellow prisoner is heard to break wind loudly.
But in the episode that aired the same sound had been reduced to ‘a barely audible breeze.’
A network spokesperson, no doubt doing their best not to laugh, conceded, ”What went to air was the correct fart, what promos used was an enhanced fart.”
”We’ve never had to do it before, this was a once off.”
A once off that was let off?
The original scene is at 1:00 min.
