Video of cellphones making popcorn pop - real or fake?

Hard to believe, but watch this video. Four cell phones are aligned around some popcorn, they are all rung at the same time, and the popcorn explodes.



Working again...



and again making popcorn



Debate rages over it being real or fake. Here is another video of the same experiment that didn't work, however the phones are different and some are on vibration.



One thing that stands out for me is the camera techniques are the same for all the videos where it did work. With the hand held zooming in on faces and people. I wonder if its all produced by the same group as a vial campaign.

Well, it would have to be some form of microwave radiation from the phones to get it to pop.

Anyway here is an interesting article from Wikipedia that is quite comprehensive. Not that one should take wikipedia as the truth but it is a good guideline.

Pause the first video at 24 seconds and play it frame by fram to see the kernals disappear and the popcorn drop from midair at about 27.
