Interesting...at first I thought it was harmonics of the vibration, but its gotta be the RF energy...

It's a hoax, think about it. How long does it take a 1000 Watt microwave
oven to pop corn? How long would it take at the 1 Watt output of a cell
phone?

This is just a new variation on the cook an egg with a cell phone hoax.

URBAN LEGEND ALERT!

See http://www.snopes.com/science/cookegg.asp (near bottom of page).

Apparently a marketing gimmick (maybe fraud?) of a bluetooth headphone
company.

I'd like to see the underside of that table. It'd be easy to strap a
microwave emitter below it and turn it on discretely.

Even easier, cheaper, safer, more reliable:

Put a solenoid just below the table cloth.  'pop' the kernel high
(onto sticky paper, or at an angle) and drop a pre-popped kernel onto
the surface.  Or use a rubberband below the surface.  Or paint magnets
and 'pop' them off with a solenoid for no surface movement.  Or use a
teflon tablecloth and simply heat the kernel.  Heat the kernel with an
infrared laser.

Easiest and safest of all, simply edit the popping corn into the video. It
doesn't take much work to have low resolution video special effects look
convincing.
