That's Like, Two Steps: The World's Shortest Escalator

January 8, 2013


This is a short video tour of the world's shortest escalator, located in Kawasaki, Japan. The escalator has a vertical rise of only 83-centimeres (~33-inches) and should have probably been a ramp instead. This video already has 5-million views on Youtube though, so I'm not going to spend any more time on it because you've probably already seen it. You never sent it to me though, so really this was all your bad.

Hit the jump for a video of Spencer Pratt demoing the thing.

Thanks to my buddy Yousri, who I witnessed getting branded with a coat hanger in college. I went first though (true story).

    I'm just waiting for the "fat American" jokes - c'mon, lets have em!
    What? This isn't in the US? You mean people in ANOTHER country have an escalator where a couple steps make sense????? Wow.
