Mystery Rooftop Contraption
The new JYSmobile mystery rooftop contraption has been woking wonders with marketing. People are constantly stopping to figure out what it is. The best remark so far has been "Bagpipe Booster Pack." In actually fact the contraption is simply a carrier for one of the drums that we bang on. Inside the drum is even more drums. The front pipes secure the drum to the roof so that it does not blow off when we drive. The back pipes serve as handles to remove the carrier whe it is not needed. It does look a little like a booster rocket pack of sorts, but that's just a coincidence. ;)
