Hungarian weatherman, Szilard Horvath, has lost his job after attempting to spice up his weather segments with automated fart noises. Horvath was hired by TV2, one of Hungarys biggest TV channels, in 2015.
TV2 does not seem to have seen the funny side of Horvaths wind gag and removed the video from their website, before axing the presenter. According to AFP, Horvath later complained that the joke would have been fine had it been a celebrity comedian: If Mr Bean or Benny Hill farts, everyone laughs, but now a big deal is being made about this.
Horvath later posted on Facebook that he had lost his job and asked if anyone was interested in a resume. A number of friends and fans commented their shock at his dismissal and expressed support for his future.
