We’ve all been in that situation.
The one where you desperately need to relieve some pressure from your bottom area but… it isn’t appropriate.
Whether it be mid-speech, on a first date, or during a yoga class, the struggle to… keep things contained is very real.
This brings us to poor old Max Kellerman.
The 45-year-old sports television personality and boxing commentator was hosting Stephen Smith on his show First Take, and we think he… farted.
As the pair discuss the nuances of basketball, the camera focuses on Kellerman’s guest, Smith, and that’s when disaster strikes.
In the name of investigative journalism, let’s try to find out what really went down.
The conversation started as all sport conversations start: with a lot of names I don’t understand.
It’s all very passionate, and they talk a lot about technical fouls and clean slates.
At one point Max Kellerman uses the phrase “He should be able to control himself” with reference to a basketball player and Max… don’t throw stones.
Moving on to the juicy stuff.
It’s at this exact moment that… it happens.
By some act of God, Stephen Smith... doesn't react.
He just keeps passionately discussing basketball tactics.
Of course, we anxiously await the return of Max to the screen.
The producers kindly put some video overlay of basketball on so that the host can gather himself.
