Sometimes the right way isn't necessarily the fun way. One of the coolest things about making popcorn is watching it pop, which is why many people opt for the campfire or frying pan when it comes to enjoying the movie-theater staple. One Japanese Twitter user, @p68qbhhurq9kxjc, however, took an even more outside-the-box by surprisingly popping a kernel of popcorn with a hair straightener, sending his female friend screaming in pleasant surprise.

While there's no real particular reason to pop an entire bag of popcorn one by one with a flat iron, at least you know it's doable in case you ever want to open up a hair-salon movie theater combination!

Judging by the friend's reaction, we think they'll be sticking to the microwave.
