    I have blown off many air bags, Yes they sound like a 12 guage but nobody in an accident hears it due to sensory overload. Once the airbag is unplugged it becomes very safe it has a metal clip which is called a shorting bar. If you cut the plug from the vehicle and install it back into the bag or pull off shorting bar and running long wires you can set it off with a watch battery.

    I remember seeing that one, but the one I was thinking of was different. It was on some tape that he had to show us.

    Please take everything I say with at least one grain of salt- I am a very sarcastic person with a very dry sense of humor.

    I must be a darwin candidate because i thought, you know if you put that guy in a helmet and armoured jacket, pad the ground, and put something between him and the airbag that could be fun.......

    AS soon as someone says , "hey, watch this " .... it's time to leave.
