"I have a feeling they meant that the staircase isn't moving at all. If I look at the top and focus more on the people, it doesn't really look like it's moving. Not sure if that's what's happening though," wrote a user.

"I see no staircase; it's a ramp. And the building seems to rotate in the direction people are going, not the opposite direction. But great video," commented another user.
