    I was expecting a porn when I heard the music.

    Won't this give car thieves ideas?

    Re: Unlock Your Car With A Tennis Ball

    Call me skeptical, but I don't see this working.
    I looked around a little on the net and I found this on a snopes message board.
    The actual act hasn't been posted on snopes yet though.
    Let's review, shall we? This can be doing one of two things.
    1. Popping the door lock button up, unlocking the door.
    2. Engaging the lock, popping the lock itself open.

    This is patently impossible.

    Why?

    Start with 2. Obviously, even if you got enough air in there to move the pins (which you won't), you're not going to be able to replicate the cylinder actually turning. It would be the same as putting a key in a lock, pulling it out, and expecting the lock to be open. Never happen.

    1 is where a lot of commenters (saw this on another board as well) get stuck. In theory, if the air were powerful enough, it could push the lock button up, unlocking the door. This, however, is impossible. No car door, ever, has been sealed well enough to make this happen. There are stabilizer bars for the hinges that need free air to move in, drain holes on the bottom edge for most, and trim that just isn't airtight.

    Five bucks says the guy pressed the unlock button when she pushed the tennis ball. Hence the "innocent blonde woman" angle.

    Wonderful, I can't wait until I find out someone broke into my car using this trick. Can anybody else see a tennis ball burglar coming to a neighborhood near you??

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    I think that chick should just put her lips up on that lock and give it a good blow.
    ;D

    Its faked.
    Don't ruin a good tennis ball trying to check it out.

    As much B.S. as the first video was, I did enjoy the follow up video;
