Well, that de-escalated quickly.
Escalators are great. They have all of the functionality of stairs with the added style of elevators. They're pretty much perfect, but the people who use them... less so.
When technology fails us, it can be hilarious. Or it can end up being like something out of a sci-fi film. We like to err on the side of hilarity, though. That's why we used Photoshop to make these robots look drunk. Otherwise, their imminent takeover is way too scary.
You probably weren't planning on watching a video featuring plastic balls and an escalator today. But here you are. And honestly? It's kind of nice. Sort of relaxing, right?
Of course, we can't talk about escalators without a shout out to Mitch Hedberg, one of the greatest comics of all time. His escalator joke (along with basically everything else he ever said) is required viewing for anyone with a sense of humor.
