Driver…..Melanie Hutsell

Spokesman: If you’re concerned about auto safety, you probably know about this.. [ holds up air bag ] ..the air bag. Experts agree it’s your best chance of surviving a collision. But there’s one drawback to the concentional air bag – it may save your life, but what do you eat while waiting for help to arrive? We at Jiffy Pop think we have the answer – the Jiffy Pop Air Bag. [ Air Bag pops open ] It’s quick, and easy.

Upon impact, the Jiffy Pop kernals in the steering column are instantly fed to the engine block, where they’re with oil from the crankcase. As the corn is popped, the bag expands, protecting the driver from injury, and, best of all, providing a delicious low-calorie treat. It’s as fun to eat as it is to make.

EMS: Not too good. How’s the Jiffy Pop?

Driver: Great!
