  1. Darnit, I needed to go diagonally…

  2. Luka says:

    Well, it could be to call different elevators, open doors on your right/left…

  3. polkaface says:

    … really. You haven’t seen those buttons before? There were an elevator to the right and left of those buttons … right?

  4. timmy says:

    But mommy I wanna go diagonal

  5. Chicky says:

    It’s like a half assed version of the Wonkavator.

  6. Sophyra says:

    hmmm….so we still can’t go diagonally in these things huh <_<

  7. fish eye no miko says:

    I think Luka is right. Plus, this might be the ground or top floor, so there’s only one direction the elevators can go from that floor.

  8. TAGVoar says:

    I figured it was the first prototype for the TurboLifts in Star Trek, except, you know, without the convenience of up and down.

  9. tahrey says:

    left/right doors i’d say (like everyone else). it would make the elevator system exceedingly old, mind you, to not have a control system able of calling any available car with you just pressing one call button (on the top floor, there’d just be a single “down” button), so it might be better to take the stairs.

    that or some enterprising vandal with a craft knife and some superglue has prised them off and rotated 90 degrees.

  10. Luka says:

    Well, I’ve seen elevators that stop only at certain floors (one elevator for even, other for odd floors). This could be one such example

  11. Steeleye5 says:

    well now Bugs Bunny doesn’t have an excuse for not taking that left turn at Albuquerque

  12. Zedo Mann says:

    It’s funny how up/down buttons by elevators both do the same thing though (summon the elevator)

  13. Paul says:

    Could it be that the photographer rotated the image 90 degrees. I don’t think I have seen elevators with side by side up and down buttons, but such could exist.

    <morbo:gt;/ELEVATORS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!</morbo:gt;

  15. Your innerself says:

    CHEATING! They take the picture sideway of the top indicator sign of the elevator!

  16. The One Guy says:

    @Zedo Mann: If an elevator is already on it’s way up to floor 4 and you are on floor 3, it will stop to pick you up on its way if you’ve pressed the up button. If you had pressed the down button instead, it would go up to floor 4 and only pick you up on the way down. So no, they don’t do the same thing.

    This must be in Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.

  18. Trent says:

    @innerself , yeah i noticed that too.

  19. Trent says:

    oops orgot to yell.


    btw the proof is on the far right. I’ve never see a black elevator door, or the inside to be pitch black. Epic Fail.

  20. fixeditman says:

    These are the elevators that go side ways that Bill Engvall talked about!

  21. Sexy Sadie says:

    Willy Wonka is lamer than anybody thought.

  22. Climb-Rocks says:

    its a Wankavator!

  23. Nick says:

    I actually was on a sideways elevator once…

  24. Shoespider says:

    thus was probabky in the topp if an elevator diir, they just turned the camera sideways
