Popping Corn with a cell phone- scam or possible?

  SparkyJack 17:22 PM 30 Jan 12

Among the daily plethora of funny's, not so funnies and just plain rude came a video of a group of individuals placing their cell phones on a table each pointing to a pile of raw popping corn- eventually it swelled up and started popping.

The inference being it was caused by the microwave transmissions of the phones and questioning whether long use would would 'pop' the users brains.

Is this for real? I thought - so I Googled and up came a whole list of variations of the theme- with clips of groups various individuals doing the same.

Also there were URL's disputing the veracity of these .

So real or a Spoof?

If a spoof- how is it achieved?
