Its hard to tell but it looks inflated to me in the pictures as its dropped - i reckon it burst..

if so it kind of looks stupid rather than impressive

after looking some more - it looks like those 2 sections were in line with the straps of the harness from the chute - i definately reckon the opening shock of the chutes opening popped the tubes as the straps slammed tight

Either that or it's dropped from the plane with low tube pressure to stop the tubes bursting at altitude.
