You Find the Fun aaaaaand, Snap! The Job's a Game!

I'm certain many of you have seen the piano stairs vs. escalator video that has gone viral recently. If not, here it is:

But, there are actually two other videos up on their site that, while not as music-tastic, are equally enjoyable to watch.

I absolutely love the whole philosophy behind it - make something fun and people will do it. On their website, thefuntheory.com, it says:

This site is dedicated to the thought that something as simple as fun is the easiest way to change people’s behaviour for the better. Be it for yourself, for the environment, or for something entirely different, the only thing that matters is that it’s change for the better.

Change the world by having fun? That's a bandwagon I'll gladly jump on!

P.S. I'm planning on moving to Sweden if only to take the stairs, throw out rubbish and recycle my glass bottles.


  1. We at my house are really enjoying 'A Reason to Stay Up All Night'! beautiful and fun!

  2. These ideas are so cute! I already think it's fun to recycle glass bottles because of the big crash they make when you drop them in a bin... but whatever it takes to get more people to do good things! :)

  3. Doesn't this just set your mind buzzing with other possible ideas? What a fantastic theory! Fun can be good for us all!

  4. Volkswagen is really onto something here. Climate change and energy are going to be critical issues in the 21st century, so it's important that we adopt things like this that are easy to implement but also very effective.


Thank you for leaving your musings! I appreciate each and every one.
