Brilliant and lovely

All those people, and none of them was (shown) playing anything‽ Sure, there was plenty of stomping, but I expected any second someone to play something, and not a one could take the effort. What's wrong with people?

Pheromone Cologne

Great post, I really enjoy it!

Wow Jack. You can certainly take the fun out of anything!

Maybe the what's wrong with people mantra - is just your internal monologue?

Try enjoying something.

I guess the glass is half-empty no matter what for some people (@Jack). Maybe these people didn't want to hold up the people behind them or they all had to be somewhere. Plus, most people probably don't know how to play something or play it well, which would cause many people not to try. You probably would have complained if someone had tried to play something, but had done it poorly.

The better question is what's wrong with you?

Trish

VERY COOL! I noticed there was an ederly man who could barely move who was making an attempt at the first step. The camera didn't stay on the scene long enough to know if he continued. But even HE was intriqued by the fun. Thanks for bombasting Poo Poo head - take the fun out of it, "Jack" so I didn't have to!
Can we figure out a way to make housework and paying bills fun next!!?? :)

I would not want to break my legs jumping up and down multiple steps .. probably much the same os some of these people !

In the Minneapolis airport there is a billboard on the wall when you walk by it the petals on the sign move according to how you walk by it. It is always fun to see people jumping in front of it. I love when people get a chance to act silly!

taylor

ha i was just in the minn airport and was doing that with the screen on sunday

TheLadyRagz

er... it's obvious that some are actually playing rather than stomping.... maybe you should watch the full unedited video Jack....

the last person shown is playing the beginning of Beethoven's piano sonata no. 8, 3rd Movement.

mccann

It's clearly shopped

Max Ortiz

Wow! I wish we had that at the Philippines.
Very Brilliant!

It seems like a good idea, but this is marketing, not science. One has to ask whether just slowing the elevator to half speed would achieve the same effect. Also, do the same number of people prefer the piano stairs over the escalator during a delayed post test? Is this really fun at work or novelty? Is there a cheaper novelty that would produce the same effect?

Sean

bravo bravo i commend the person who came up with this idea

l'insolito attrae sempre.

LandLord

It amazes me how some people work so hard to do something good.

dan

Benji

sure, more people picked the stairs. but they never said WHY that was better. they just said that it was...

Thanks for sharing, I think these piano stairs are so cool! My husband and I want a unique look like this one in our home, and I think were going to buy some spiral staircase kits get some installed.
