Video of Piano Staircase in Sweden

Piano Staircase: Cool or Not?

A friend recently passed along this video from The Fun Theory that documents the following experiment: will more people take the stairs over an escalator by making it fun to do? The group turns a set of stairs in a busy Stockholm metro station into a working piano — the idea being that making things fun can help change people's behavior for the better. Was it a success? Check out the video.

I thought that the concept was pretty cool, and it was fun to watch how a set of musical stairs made people excited during their commute. After seeing the video, some of my friends had quite a different opinion, notably: "It's a pretty sad state of affairs when we have to make taking the stairs 'fun.' Are people really that lazy, because I can think of about 100 other things where that money is more needed."

I love making fitness fun, but does my friend make a valid point?
