The SX-70's main claim to fame was that it really put an end to those awkward moments at the film processor's counter and those annoying visits from law enforcement.

Considering the developing chemicals were contained within the plastic of the picture, blowing on it would have no effect whatsoever. Similarly, shaking instant film would not help anything dry or develop faster, but might instead cause the chemicals to shift and collect in certain areas causing an ill-developed picture.

For best results, one should lay the picture flat on a table, undisturbed, until developing is complete. However, that doesn't make quite the same catchy song lyrics.
