I know a guy who could certainly give it a heck of a try.

Haven't had a chance to watch the video, but thanks for the laugh at the concept!

I can't believe I'm actually responding to this post....

Even though the concept is inherently hilarious, I don't think that such a scenario would be possible.
I doubt that even the most epic emission of flatulence would generate enough thrust to propel much of anything, even through space. Add to that, the 'space-traveler' would have to carry a substantial supply of gas-producing foodstuffs to ensure a steady output. Then, of course, there are certain associated spacesuit design engineering problems to be solved.
Am I over-anal-yzing this?

After an epic evening at a Taco Bell, I would have made it to the moon. However, I bumped into some invisible dome out in space.
