Blondes have often been accused of not being very smart and this video of a woman going the wrong way up an escalator will do little to help that reputation.
It’s hard to believe this young woman was being serious when she climbed up the escalators the wrong way round at Saks Fifth Avenue.
She is seemingly unaware that escalators are there to aid you when going up levels and that you’re not meant to be battling against them.
The woman courageously (or stupidly) fights her way to the top, while wearing heels and being watched by bemused members of the public who are using the moving staircase appropriately.
A passer-by is apparently so amused he decides to record it. He barely manages to keep his composure and can be heard laughing hysterically.
The blonde finally made her way to the top after 42 seconds of punishing work.
The clip was uploaded by YouTube user ruderuderidee and has become an online sensation, with nearly 800,000 hits since it was uploaded on November 11.
Users have been having a field day with comments, with some having sympathy for the blonde and commending her ‘resourcefulness’ in using an escalator to get fit. And others like Glozboy22 ‘desperate for her to slip and fall to the bottom’.
