Arse Wind?

Walking along Route 246, I was surprised to look up and see the katakana script reading アースウィンド!
 びっくり仰天だった!
アースis, in English, arse…or, so I thought. Arse wind, then, could only mean one thing….surely a company couldn’t have named itself after a fart?
Of course it didn’t. In fact, アース is also the reading for earth. That makes Earth Wind a little easier to comprehend, even if the English is still a little awkward.
