Piano Stairs Video

Here is a brief translations:

0:10 Can we get more people to choose the stairs if we make it more fun? 

1:08 66% more people choose the stairs in favor of the escalators 

1:28 Apparently, joy can change behaviour

1:44 An initiative from Volkswagen 1:44 An initiative from Volkswagen

I hate to be negative, but I’m afraid that after the novelty wears off 99% of the people would go back to the escalator.
