WATCH: Holy Sh*t, You Can Make Popcorn With a Hair Straightener

Wow. Just, wow. This video brings us extreme amounts of joy. A Twitter user in Japan has popped a popcorn kernel using ONLY a straightening iron, and it’s incredible:


This is excellent news for two reasons. Firstly, it allows us to watch this video over and over again as much as we please. Second, popcorn is a healthy snack, and in small apartments, particularly in New York City, sometimes there isn’t room for a microwave. We now know that you can have popcorn with just a small, common beauty tool. Plus the amount of time it takes to pop each kernel is ideal for portion control.

Full disclosure: We can’t tell you anything about how the popcorn tastes. The guy who made the video told Buzzfeed, “I didn’t eat it so I don’t know if it tasted good, but it was insanely stiff.”

Please try it anyway, and let us know how it goes. If you’re anything like the people in this video, it will make your day.
