Here's a terrifying video that shows the importance of having an airbag that works as it's supposed to versus having an airbag that works... but is a hundredth of a second late. You see one watermelon drop in slow motion and get cradled by the deployment of an airbag versus another watermelon that explodes.

All just because it was a split second late. Crazy.
