Oops, wrong door: People versus bad design
I was at the Don Kihote in Niigata today with nothing to do. I was waiting for my wife to finish her Toeic test, and just chillin at the entrance. As I chilled... I noticed a lot of people were confused by the doors. They kept choosing the wrong one. The design is atrocious and the signage is minimal. I told the building security about it and they basically said, thanks for telling us, and left it at that. In the end, I decided to take video. I whipped out my iPhone and for about 45 minutes, recorded people coming into the building. After a little editing, I added some music and sound effects. Hope you like it.
