    Definitely not true from how slowly the airbag inflated and deflated. That stuff happens faster than we can see, and definitely too fast to be captured on that camera. Still, funny as hell! :D

    This is the real deal:

    Airbags deploy from the suspension bottoming out. I'd have to assume there's a motion sensor rather than a crush switch since there's no front-end impact.

    Man, I gotta remove that airbag...

    So the scene in "Fight Club" where they're hitting bumpers with baseball bats and making the air bags deploy is totally fake? Thats a bummer...I always wanted to try that:(

    It sure doesn't make sense, but its funny as hell..... nah i think the combination of speed and the jumping, the airbag sensor somehow knew the taco was jumping because of the accelerometer....maybe

    1. You're not supposed to talk about it.

    When they hit the beetle's bumper, the air bag deployed as well as the alarm going off....not that it has anything to do with this thread...I just like wasting time instead of working:D
