Korea - Etiquette bell

Sometimes my curiosity gets the better of me.  This was my first encounter with the (only seen in) Korea etiquette bell.  The purpose is to cover any embarrassing sound one may produce while using the facilities.

I had a vague idea that pushing the button would make some sort of flushing or water sound come out of the machine.  However I was not prepared for the startlingly loud sound that was produced nor the fact that there was no way to stop the sound once it started - and let me tell you it went on forever!! The video doesnt really capture the full volume experience but at least you get an idea.
