Nothing Like Reading the Star Wars Opening Crawl on an Escalator

Star-Wars-New-Hope-Escalator 2

This escalator in Tel Aviv’s City Hall could be the most awesome people movers I’ve ever seen.  Not only does it feature the infamous Star Wars opening crawl from “A New Hope”, but it also features other pieces of art to make it stand out from the pack.  I’m not sure if these paintings get rotated over time or not, but this Star Wars themed escalator is definitely worth checking out if you ever feel like heading to the Middle East.

On second thought, why not just check it out on YouTube and save yourself a little time and money.  I’ve queued it up to automatically start with the Star Wars crawl (click on video link to go to crawl), but feel free to browse through it to see the other escalator paintings.  You’ve been wondering where I find this crap…
