Bubble Wrap will no longer pop when you squeeze it. Go ahead and cry, I did a little. pic.twitter.com/VHnerYTgXN— Benjamin (@BenMerriman16) July 2, 2015
They've found a way of taking the "popping" element out of bubble wrap. You might as well take the "warmth" element out of sunshine.— Gyles Brandreth (@GylesB1) July 3, 2015
#bubblewrap that can't pop is about to be the only kind that exists, so hoard the original stuff. Kids of the future need to experience fun.— Morgan Crego (@MorganCrego) July 2, 2015
I hope they know that no pop in Bubble Wrap will lead to violence, increased PMS, World War 3 and what not.— Rachita Vaid (@RachitaVaid) July 3, 2015
I don't want to live in a world where bubblewrap isn't poppable.— Sonya Yu (@sonyayu) July 3, 2015
I'm saving a roll of poppable bubble wrap to sell at massively inflated prices to desperate addicts in coming years.— Wyn (@WynRichards) July 3, 2015
However, after the initial scare, Sealed Air Corp clarified that the original Bubble Wrap would still remain in production and that the 'iBubble Wrap' was just a new version to offer, for the shippers to decide.
The key word here, folks, is "version". The original remains - pops and all! http://t.co/nhn9eGLk6V— Bubble Wrap Brand (@BubbleWrapSEE) July 3, 2015
