Turning a Staircase into a Piano

(YouTube Link)

This Volkswagen commercial is about one effort to get people to take the stairs instead of the escalator (presumably for the exercise). The company turned a staircase at a Stockholm subway station into a piano and videotaped how travelers responded.

This made me happy.

Other than the music It doesnt seem any different than a regular staircase Alex but I guess people here sue even when they fall down non musical stairs.

Interesting idea.

This would likely create more loitering. And then more people being annoyed by the noise, because I bet it doesn't sound as nice as the fancy music they played throughout most of that video, especially with a crowd on it.

I work in an Australian stair company, and we're all about making them beautiful to try and attract people too them. Perhaps we should focus on making them wacky instead!
