While we’re not surprised at all, we’re absolutely fascinated at this peek into how shopping malls are designed. This video by Hungry Beast shows us some of the mind-tricks that malls play on us to get us to BUY BUY BUY. Is this true of the inside of your local mall?

  • You can’t see outside from within the inner portion mall – ditto to the above sentiment
  • The floor is tiled – and the music and noise within the halls bounces loudly
  • The lighting is harsh

  • softer music
  • good lighting

All to make you feel comfortable!
