The Hopi Hari amusement park in São Paulo, Brazil hired the QG Propaganda agency to create a promotion for their roller-coasters. They chose escalators as their medium and did a great job of grabbing people's attention with these mobile ads. (GUSH Magazine)

Implications - The digital age has encouraged a drastic change in the advertising industry, with those in the media section of advertising scrambling to find the best alternative to the allegedly dying print medium.
