Chinese Street Vendor Demonstrates a Traditional Popcorn Cannon

In this 2013 video by Théo Paul, a Chinese street vendor demonstrates a traditional popcorn maker that blasts popcorn out like a cannon when the device is opened. Back in 2012 MythBusters tried to replicate the popcorn maker with somewhat disastrous results. According to the Washington Post, MythBusters’ failed popcorn cannon was the subject of much amusement in China.
