This past weekend my wife and I made popcorn and it sparked the debate on what popcorn looks like when it pops. We looked it up and it's fascinating!

When you make a pot of popcorn, it's so cool to see it popping, but it's not easy to see the moment it goes from just a kernel to a full-blown piece of nummy popcorn. Once the kernel reaches a certain temp it's like a car airbag explosion.

The folks who did this video not only captured extremely high quality slow motion of this amazing transformation, but also made it sexy! Be sure to watch it with some wine and candle light to get the full effect ;)
