Spinning U-Haul Truck

If you watch the movie SALT, during the chase scene on the bridge you can see the spinning U-Haul truck in the background.

I was on my way back from a car show and was driving along I-787, and spotted what looks to be a full size U-Haul box truck spinning on a stick on top of a U-Haul facility in Albany, NY.
