Takatak Boys

The "takatak boys" are called onomatopoeically such because they have noisemakers in their selling boxes. These noisemakers allow them to make their presence known to the motoring (or walking) public.

If you check the video below out, you will notice that the takatak man is manipulating a pretty well-made component. Another version I've seen involves a piece of wood held down by rubber to the side of the selling box. The boys have to lift it up with their fingers and thwap it.

I mentioned them briefly here and am pretty hopeful that in the future they start selling things that I actually consume.
