Sir, why are you taking a picture of the elevator?

Um, because it's AWESOME, that's why.

I don't care if a guy fell out of the 17th floor window and miraculously survived, my friends at the Hyatt Minneapolis rock.

Look at their sweet elevator button. Classic example of making the mundane memorable. I've never seen an elevator in all my life with such a great button. (Except maybe The Hughes Group from last year's post, elevator action.)

Now, I know what you're thinking: it's a damn elevator button! Who cares?

I dunno, maybe the guest who's claustrophobic. Maybe the child who's crying because the elevator stopped mid-floor. Maybe the person who saw Speed way too many times.

BOTTOM LINE: when was the last time you actually noticed the elevator button, thought it was cool, snapped a picture of it (!), then posted it on your blog for millions of people to see?


What if it wasn't an elevator button. What if it was your business card?

Seen any cool elevator buttons before? Tell us about them!
