I remember the lads doing similar at Mercedes, put one under a traffic cone, under a metal frame wood top table......

table took off across the valet bay in style at considerable height, and the road cone took off further, 20+ft in the air and over the steel fence into our car storage area fortunately missing all the cars when it landed

didn't do it again :rolleyes:

or....😂

People don't realise how powerful airbags are, launching anyone off of one is really dangerous, they'd easily get crippled from the spine compression. Play safe kids! 💥

FYI youtube has a nice feature to adjust the playback speed, even at 0.25x on the slo-mo the inflation is crazy fast 😳

Deafening when we did that at the workshop at Thatcham crash test training.

Ever see the video of the guy who gets sat on 3 tyres, with the airbag underneath? Genius… 😂 never gets old
