The Fun Theory – Piano Stairs

We found this really fun video on the Fun Theory website.  It’s an initiative sponsored by Volkswagen to see if we can change people’s behaviour through making it fun.  ”Take the stairs instead of the escalator or elevator and feel better” is something we often hear or read in the Sunday papers.  Few people actually follow that advice. Can we get more people to take the stairs over the escalator by making it fun to do?  Plus, of course it’s a really cool way of exposing music into people’s lives, in a way that you don’t need to have any training in order to enjoy creating it.  It made me think of the scene in the film Big where Tom Hanks plays the giant floor piano in the toy shop – amazing.
