The most famous fart scene of all time. We've been waiting forever for someone to upload this video! It's the epitome of classic movie scenes. You cannot fart and not think of the campfire scene in Blazing Saddles. Are we right?!
Video loading below. My take a moment to appear in the empty space below:
Here's some trivia for ya:
- "At the time, Mel Brooks thought his movie "Blazing Saddles" would be particularly offensive. Thirty years later, he sounds almost shockingly naive. He says that he asked a studio executive about the farting scene ("We knew that had never been done in a movie") and the one where Mongo appears to punch out a horse and was told, "Mel, if you're going to go up to the bell, ring it." When the movie premiered, Brooks says that the head of Warner Brothers told him to take out the farting scene and the horse punch. "Can you imagine if I didn't have final cut?" Brooks asks."
- "In 2000, the American Film Institute listed Blazing Saddles as #6 on its list of the all-time funniest American films. Also in 2000, readers of Total Film magazine voted it the 9th greatest comedy film of all time. The film is number 9 on Bravo's "100 Funniest Movies"." (reprinted from Wikipedia)
