Airbag: 1, Pumpkin: 0 – Click above to watch video after the jump

There are plenty of reasons to love Fall. Perfect driving weather, turning leaves, a host of excellent holidays and, of course, pumpkin carving all help to make the passing of Summer all the less painful. But what happens when you get bored with cutting scary faces into unsuspecting gourds? What then? With a little engineering ingenuity and sense of reckless abandon, you could always subject your pumpkins to the destructive force of, say, an airbag from a 1995 Ford Escort.

Hey, some people juggle geese.

Between the rapid expansion of gasses into a synthetic bag and the always hilarious popping properties of pumpkins, you're all but guaranteed instant YouTube success. Just remember not to try this kind of shenanigans at home. Or, if you do decide to make your own airbag vs. pumpkin video, don't tell the authorities where you got the idea. Deal? Hit the jump to check a duo of pumpkin popping videos. Thanks for the tip, Coop!
