The popcorn thing seemed a little far-fetched. Cell phone signals couldn't possibly heat up corn kernels to the point where they would pop like that. I`m not surprised at all.

XD I'm the one who submited the original video, and sadley, I thought it was real.
BTW, at the end of the article, the guy said he doesnt even know how they did the effect. Jeez, that is gonna bug me for the next 3 minutes.
Sorry guys!

People thought the original was real? Lmao.
Besides the fact that common sense sort of states it's impossible, the camera work was clearly only *supposed* to look amateur, and the actors sucked.

Seems like a pretty bad marketing campaign, since even if it motivated people to get headsets they only *might* get the Cardo ones.
