This is the Terrifying Result When Your Airbag Deploys One Hundredth of a Second Too Late

Airbags are literal life savers. Anyone who has seen a crash test dummy smash its head against a less than perfect airbag can see the massive damage that can potentially happen when these devices aren’t used to their full potential.

Now, Honda has just released a video that shows the devastating result of an airbag deploying a little too late. Watch the clip above which demonstrates a watermelon fall atop an airbag that goes off in time, and one that doesn’t.

It’s enough to urge us to go get our airbags checked to make sure everything is in proper functioning order, and as the video aims to do, we’re going to make sure we have genuine parts in our car.
