[dropcap]T[/dropcap]his is a scene we captured Thursday, 16th July 2015, on Allen Roundabout, Obafemi Awolowo Way, Ikeja-Lagos. It caught attention of motorists and attracted lots of pedestrians, who wondered how a man could be sitting comfortably on nothing. Or something no one could see.
“If I begin to talk to you about what we have done,” he eventually responded, “I might reveal what I’m not supposed to reveal”.
But the box he was supposedly suspended on was branded MTN. The ‘magician’ too wore an MTN-branded T-Shirt. The only clue we got is the word TECHNOLOGY printed on the box. That got us thinking:
The scientific power that made the guy to beat gravitational force might be a machine inside the box on which a carpet was laid. MTN might be about to launch a hi-tech gadget, using that magical performance to create curiosity and awareness. We gathered that similar scene took place at two other locations, including Oshodi, in Lagos.
