I want you to take a listen to this video, and listen good. Is this a real fart?

Rough night for the Memphis Grizzlies, right? Or at least one would think.
On the one had, it seems like it definitely came from the broadcast. There’s a pause as it slips out, then some slight laughter after. Props to the announcer who held it in. No props to the guy who let one rip.
Also, Fox Sports posted the same information in the video online, but in GIF form, as if they don’t want us to hear something. Veeery suspicious.

On the other hand, it could be fake.
My first thought was that it was the viewer, but the telltale giggle in the broadcast says otherwise.
BUT, what if it was a planted toot. What if one of the announcers pressed a sound-effect button at an opportune time?
If you listen to it again, it isn’t a muffled-pant-fart. It’s a cheeks-in-the-wind fart.
So, either there was a microphone floating around someone’s nether regions, or this was fake.
Or, someone is just really prolific at breaking wind, and the pants didn’t matter. And it was real.
Let us know what you think.
