    You must not know how an airbag control unit works. Every movie where someone hits a stationary car to trigger the airbag makes me shake my head.

    I'm not entirely aware of how airbags work, but I still vote for staged. If the guy was irate enough to be revving/honking at the hag, I figure he'd explode when an airbag is shot into his face. I've heard of those things causing some serious damage on impact. A guy I work with has scars on his hands/forearms from the friction burn.

    I still chuckled tho. Gotta spread the love =(

    It was staged. There is no way to trigger the airbags by hitting the bumper of a stationary car.

    could you imagine the lawsuits and complaints companies would have?

    but it would be fun to piss off people who park too close to my door or hit my car by setting off the air bag with a good kick.

    yeah a hit or a kick would not be strong enough to set off the airbag sensors. but a hit in the right place would shut off the fuel pump on some cars haha

    LMAO :) probably staged but i dont know. on hondas you have to be going over a speed limit...i think its 15 mph or the impact sensor must be hit with a certain amount of impact. when i was sittin in a car on the lift my co worker was hitting the car underneeth looking for a rattle. i'm in drive at like 25-30 mph and looking for a good radio station-tap-tap-tap-BAMMM!!! the air bag goes off. the shop actually sent me to the hospital in an ambulance LOL i only had a slight burn on my arm from the air bag. now a mercedees might have an rpm sensor on the air bag. i'm not sure but i still think its staged. good shit

    wow. this is really really old.

    and the last Die hard movie, they had a scene where he set of the airbag in a new bmw i think? by hitting the car with a trash can.

    i was just disappointed.
