Once You Pop You Just Can't Stop

Ole Miss fans will just not stop sending Lane Kiffin popcorn

October 07, 2021

It’s been a banner week for popcorn. After Lane Kiffin dropped a “getcha popcorn ready” on America like a Looney Tunes piano on Saturday, the salty, low-cal snack has been experiencing a MOMENT. First, Pepsi unveiled a limited-edition Cracker Jack flavor for the MLB playoffs …

… then the Rebels announced a free bucket for the first 5,000 fans through the doors of Vaught Hemingway Stadium on Saturday, hilarious Lane Kiffin photoshop and all.

Needless to say, it’s quite the time to be alive if you’re a part of the poppable corn industry, and nothing drove that point home quite like the brimming kettles of kernels Coach Kiff received from fans this week in the build-up to Ole Miss’ top-20 showdown with Arkansas on Saturday. Look upon glory and weep, humble snackers.

Movie night is officially covered in the Kiffin household. That much is clear. Now if you’ll excuse us, we have to go get this damn kernel out of our gums.
