A Japanese Twitter user recently discovered that it is possible to pop popcorn using a hair straighter. I mean who needs a microwave anyway, right? Even though we aren't quite sure what sparked the curiosity to perform this unique experiment, it definitely looks like a lot of fun.

What makes the video great is the anticipation. You aren't sure if or when the popcorn is actually going to pop. With over 18 thousand likes and 14 thousand retweets, you could say the experiment was a great success. And it didn't take Twitter users long to try it out for themselves.
This obviously isn't the best way to make an entire bowl of popcorn, but if you're bored out of your mind, it's a great way to have a good laugh with your friends.
