"Whoopee record at Thunderpants premiere," CBBC Newsround
Imagine going to watch a film at the cinema and coming out a record-breaker!
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.
We had achieved what no other had dared to achieve before - a world record in a simultaneous fart!
