Didn't I already say it was on Mythbusters? It was the tennis ball method they tested and even worked up to compressed air to see if they could pop the lock and they couldn't.the plunger 1 may be on that car, but some older cars central locking uses an air system, and i seem to remember that they could be opened with a tennis ball cut in half, i think i was shown it when i was young by an 'old school' mechanic
But then again i could be wrong
I do agree, all those video's appeared to be spoofs, and i dont doubt what you say on Mythbusters, but i do remember, 15 years or so ago fixing a central locking system for someone, the central locking worked off some sort of air system. even then it was an older car, and not a particacularily expensive one, but i cant remember what car it was. I have only ever seen this system on 1 car thoughDidn't I already say it was on Mythbusters?

Not only are the methods suss (opening with your TeeVee remote? Come on...) the way it is filmed too; trying to act like they're breaking the law and have to tip toe around.
It's the whole thing, the whole package....it just "looks" like a spoof.
