Okay, on the Underground here in London they use escalators to good effect with ads. Why? The ads are head height.

Now, I might be wrong, but when I see people on escalators I don't seem them looking down where these are placed. Especially women, who are generally looking at the shops. The men are checking themselves in the mirror. And everyone is looking out for that group of hoodies that may or may not be harbouring a grudge against shoppers...

Well, maybe I took it a bit far, but you know what I mean :)

No, I think you're right. There are far better examples of escalator ads here already.
