Russian Olympics promo lets passengers squat for their subway ticket
Even though the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics have been marred with controversy over the last few months, there are still some great things happening to promote the event. This is one of them.
Subway stations in Russia currently have a promotion running where passengers can do 30 squats and get their ticket (usually worth around $0.92) for free. Users must complete 30 squats within two minutes using a specially-made machine. The machine counts with you and knows if you’re actually doing squats or trying to trick it (a bit like trying to trick your Wii Fit… don’t try and tell me you haven’t done that!).
Without being able to read Russian, the details of how the machine works are scarce, but check it out in action here:
