Macro photography usually remains at a constant distance from the object being photographed. But Macrofying pulled off this slick shot which starts out wide on a hot pan filled with popcorn and oil, then zooms in on a single kernel to see it pop in ultra slow-motion.
Nicolas Bras likes to make unique musical instruments. He created this unusual instrument out of skinny PVC pipes designed to make that popping sound you make by hooking a finger in your cheek and yanking it. He then goes on to play the perfect song on it – Hot Butter’s Popcorn.
Made in Japan by Puebco, this borosilicate glass pitcher makes perfect popcorn in your microwave. Just add popcorn, place butter in the top melter, and nuke until popped.

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 hairdryer. We wonder just how many takes it took them to get this just right.
R2-D2 was always the most versatile droid in the Star Wars universe. Beyond his computer hacking, hologram projecting, X-wing piloting, and drink serving skills, he can also pop popcorn. This air-popper droid features a removable dome head that doubles as a serving bowl.
Berco’s bestselling popcorn costs $6 for a bag. But 2 Chainz’s show isn’t called Most Bestsellingest Sh*t, so the Chicago-based shop brought its Billion Dollar Popcorn, which is coated with 23K gold and some expensive salt. It costs $5 for one kernel. Humanity is hopeless.
