Blowtorch Popcorn

Blowtorch Popcorn

This silly little video clip from filmmakers Zita and Rafael of Crictor may be short, but it’s immensely satisfying. Watch as a single kernel of popcorn is dropped into a blow torch, and somehow ends up floating perfectly atop the wind made by a hair dryer. We wonder just how many takes it took them to get this just right.

Hold the pickle, hold the lettuce, bathroom orders don’t upset us. These playful bars from Snows Cut Soaps look just like a real burger, stacking a not-all-beef patty, lettuce, and tomato between sesame seed buns, and finishing them off with a pickle. They don’t smell the part, though, instead packing a pleasant honey almond scent.
