Gas Blast

The actual scientific term for lighting a fart is “pyroflatulence”, everybody, in case you were wondering what it’s like to have the universe bend down and kiss you directly on the lips.
The Gas Blast

The Gas Blast is a taunt for the Pyro with the Thermal Thruster equipped.

Upon taunting, the Pyro simultaneously jumps and reaches behind their back with both hands to take out a match and a match box. The Pyro stares at the match box for a second before striking the match against the match box and holding the lit match in front of them, staring at the flame for another second before turning around, reaching between their legs to place the match in front of the rear area, and letting loose a magnificent burst of flame while watching over their shoulder. The Pyro then stops and jumps around again as the flame disappears.

A Gas Blast kill completely fills the Pyro's "Mmmph" bar if equipped with the Phlogistinator.
