Cellphone Popcorn

Okay, I'm late to the game with this one, shoot me. This viral's been up for over a week. It's some dudes positioning cell phones in a square around unpopped popcorn. They dial the phones, they ring, and the popcorn starts popping. So what does a cellphone do to your brain? It's so interesting that this just hit the tipping point now. It's gone totally viral. I even heard about it on the radio yesterday. Yet according to Snopes some version of this urban legend has been around since 2000. What happened was this: Cardo Systems, a manufacturer of Bluetooth headsets, created these viral videos to promote sales, making the claim that their product "reduces power output by 99%." As a hypochondriac and conspiracy theorist, I consider this viral campaign marketing gold. Excuse me, I'm gonna go use a circle of 500 cellphones to create a Stargate.
