Looks tacky, but it’s not completely believable.

You can die from a lot methane.
And if it is true, it’s sad but absolutely hilarious at the same time, so in a way I hope it’s
not true so then I wont feel bad.

Breathing would fill the room with CO2 as well….Mythbusters also said this is impossible to do. They used a really small room with no ventilation.
