Watch popcorn kernels explode in slow-motion

Pass the butter and salt after you watch this video

The YouTube channel "theslowmoguys" have published this video in which they watch popcorn kernels pop up. You'd think watching popcorn pop is as exciting as watching water boil, but when you see it in slow motion, it's strangely alluring.

Now, sitting there while the corn is popping, and doing it in a frying pan instead of a pot or a popcorn popper isn't too bright, but these guys have never been lauded for their intelligence when shooting some of their videos.
