Four cellphones pop corn faster than a 1000W microwave oven without burning the users' hands and ears just from having them on? I think it's a clever trick. I've got to figure out how they did that!

It is a trick, a cool one at that, but still a trick.

Too funny. Who figures these things out. I wonder if it was butter or extra butter flavored.

Here is the reason and how it was done for them. Heck, went over my head cause I didn't even think of a bluetooth when watching it, lol. Guess that one was a waste of time for them. lol
