The star of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa was the long trumpet vuvuzelawhich enabled spectators to feel as if they were in the middle of a beehive.

The Guardian commented,

Some people say the vuvuzela originates from a tribal instrument used to summon people to important meetings. Others say it comes from a plastics factory in south China. The truth is unclear.
