The doggy farts loudly and the mushroom-shaped fart makes viewers laugh knowingly. The “culprit”, however, raises his butt high in the air and is unwilling to face the facts.
We often face situations when people talk complete hokum or their way out of troubles; we regularly run into different kinds of difficulties at different stages of our lives. Nevertheless, how do we face them? Perhaps people nowadays should all regard “BOOM!” as a learning target: showing our emotions in situationally-appropriate ways, just like the fart resounds through the skies, release those negative emotions at ease and face everything in an easy way. After all, it’s pretty easy for people to laugh at themselves or others when they do something like fart and many things turn out all right after this lightsome atmosphere.
Looking into the surface of "BOOM!", viewers could see the reflections of themselves. The work seems to reflect the inner children of us, who still have a heart for playing.
