    How do these kind of videos always scream FAKE? No matter how hard they try, it always is clearly fake.

    Fire breathing flames are not that hot, to pop a kernel it requires the water to boil, passing through a flame designed to be low temperature would not pop them, fake but cool.

    This is totally fake because what makes popcorn pop is water boiling inside the kernel and when a kernel just passes through fire like that, there isn`t time for the water to heat to a boil. And his saliva would boil. Just saying...

    I think it`s the same people who made the popcorn cellphone videos, although I doubt it`s the same way they did it. It may well be real, but it definitely isn`t an amateur video seein how it`s perfectly "amateur" a la cloverfield.

    It takes a couple of seconds for even fire to pop a kernel though. I mean you can run your hand through fire if you do it fast enough. Basically all you`d need to do to test this is get a lighter and very quickly pass it over a single kernel.

    In short: I think it`s fake.

    Mythbusters did an episode on popcorn myths. Explosions didn`t cause the kernels to pop, so it`s just about impossible that merely spitting them through a fire would. Definitely fake, but nicely done all the same.

    Fake...the fire wouldn`t produce anywhere NEAR enough heat to `pop` them.

    And the puffed out cheeks is one of the worst bits of After Effects editing I have ever seen...

    popcorn takes ages to heat up and pop. needs to be hot enough for the moisture inside the corn to expand and pressurize. try it with a lighter, it takes some time.

    you can see he just blows his mouth out, and uses his tounge to look like its bursting. doesnt need any effects, dont even see him put the corn in his mouth, does it all too quick to be real

    clever, but it`s fake. he couldn`t spit the popcorn at the flame and it pop, it`s gotta be hot for more than a faction of a second

    The amount of heat required to boil the water contained in the endosperm in that short a time would be high enough to easily burn the popcorn. This is fake for sure. Scientifically impossible.
