I am ignoring the derisive Youtube comments, which fail to grasp that this is about fun, finesse, and getting a lot of mileage out of shoestring village budgets - and not about "shooting for the stars".

Cheers!

I did like they showed the sex puppets, for coplating gods to make rain, a big part of the rocket ceremony but farangs often don't seem to notice
