Man plays 'farty sounds' to make fun of KKK supporters at rally

A sousaphone player has provided an amusing backing track as protesters argued the removal of the Confederate flag from the South Carolina Statehouse in the US.

The rally, which was organised by the Ku Klux Klan earlier this month, was taking placed near the capital building in the city of Columbia when resident Matt Buck came up with a genius idea.

Mr Buck, pulled out his sousaphone - an instrument very similar to a tuba - and began playing a funny fart sounding tune to make them sound as stupid as possible.


"I didn't really know how to show my opposition, so that was my way of doing it," Mr Buck told the Charleston City Paper.

"My goal was to embarrass them, and I think I did a little bit."

He said he followed the tune up with Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries", which is used in the Nazi car chase in the film The Blues Brothers.

Despite the KKK hosting the rally, it is understood that other groups also attended - including the Detroit-based National Socialist Movement Party.

Mr Buck said no one at the rally confronted him over his musical protest, however it’s believed there were a few minor scuffles on the day between the KKK supporters and African American activists.
