This vuvuzela has been sitting on top of the unfinished bridge for quite some time now. It was built by Hyundai as a promotion for the FIFA world cup tournament which South Africa recently held.
It is approximately 53m long (112 feet), and was blown as a call to action to go and watch the game before each match.
I hope that they leave it there as a reminder of a great month, and of course it finally puts the bridge to good use!
Love them or hate them, they have become the unofficial musical instrument of South Africa, and integral to the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Personally, I find them noisy and anti-social, but despite myself I love them!
Viva South Africa.
