(KGTV) - Does a video really show a man popping popcorn using salt, a battery, a pickle, and an iPhone charger?


In the video, a man shakes salt into a bowl and then takes a AA battery and sticks it in a pickle. He then jams an iPhone charger into the pickle. Then he takes the charging end of the cord, places it into the popcorn kernels, and the popcorn starts popping.

But the whole thing is just for show.

The popcorn was already in the bowl under the unpopped kernels and came to the surface when the man shook the bowl.
