  Whoopee record at Thunderpants premiere
Updated 12 May 2002, 20.51

Imagine going to watch a film at the cinema and coming out a record-breaker!

Well, that's what happened me and about 620 other people.

Each person was given a whoopee cushion before going into the film and a Guinness World Records person was on hand to make sure the record was properly done.

After only a few attempts, my record breaking companions and I were told we had hit the big time.

We had achieved what no other had dared to achieve before - a world record in a simultaneous fart!

I was feeling very proud!

Mind you, there was of course good reason for such an attempt.

Sunday saw the premiere of Thunderpants, a film about a boy who has problems in the wind department - he can't stop blowing-off!

And boy does he do that well.

It stars Rupert Grint of Harry Potter fame and newcomer Bruce Cook who plays the title role.

Bruce says the film "is really cool."

His rather dodgy haircut is due to him filming a new adaptation of Charles Dickens' Nicholas Nickleby.

Thunderpants is released on 24 May.

Come back soon to read Stephanie's Press Pack report on the Premiere.
