RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. Maybe you've heard that a handful of American cities have been overtaken by electric scooters. But if scooting your way from point A to point B doesn't capture your real spirit, I give you the pogo stick.

They're promoting the added fitness element and, of course, the statement it makes, because nothing says I have arrived like a pogo stick.
