Plenty of people were fooled into believing they could, though, after watching a video showing cell phones popping corn on the Internet ...

Truth is, the whole thing was a hoax. Cardo Systems, a wireless headset manufacturer, created and distributed the videos as a viral marketing campaign. But as pointed out in Slate, the effect of this clever (or insidious, depending on your point of view) advertisement was to tap into people's fears about cell-phone safety: If it can cook popcorn, so the idea goes, what might it be doing to our brains?

Still, we wonder: How'd they get the corn to pop in the video?

Here's how: Once the cell phones started ringing, the video makers dropped popped kernels into the center of the table, between the phones. They later digitally removed the unpopped kernels you see early in the video, thereby creating the illusion that your cell phone can double as a Jiffy Pop.

Nice find.
I'd like to get my mother-in-law to put one into the top pocket of her blouse, then call her.
Talk about things popping!
