How to Pop a Straw

A simple trick you can use just about anywhere to startle friends or the fellow in the other booth!

Watch and Learn
I put together a little video to show you how it's done:
  • Be sure to pinch the two ends firmly, you don't want to let any air out
  • If you're using a bendy straw, be sure to open it first
  • Roll the straw vertically so that it rolls on itself, if you don't the straw will get twisted and won't build up proper air pressure
  • If you're having troubles holding the straw with your pinky, have someone else flick the straw
  •  Keep trying! It may take time and a whole bunch of straws, but eventually, you'll get it!

Have fun!
