The most frustrating part of a city dweller's day might be the crowded commute by train. The Sisaprod Ligne 8 installation has certainly succeeded to brighten up people's urban journeys through the systematic transformation of the Metro de Paris. Once the subway slowed at the platform and the doors opened, passengers got a glimpse of an interior that was entirely enveloped in wrapping paper.
The seats, the backrests, the supportive rails and poles, the floor, the ceiling and just about every surface around the carriage's entrance was covered with a cheerful pattern of pink, orange and red illustrated presents. The Christmas-decorated Sisaprod Ligne 8 train would have been sufficient in bringing smiles to the faces of even the most Scrooge-like of travelers.
