Window Pain

Did You Spy The Spider?

A five-star hotel in China has dressed its window cleaners as Spider-Man in an effort to avoid disturbing guests. A spokesman for the Shanghai Sheraton Hotel says: "Nobody wants to see a person suddenly appear outside their window, so we thought of dressing them as movie characters.” Many guests have asked to have their photos taken with them.

Spy... er... A Super Hero would be even more unexpected for me... and scare me even more!

Very clever idea, but I think it must scare the life out of you either way!

I wish they'd dress the construction workers here at my University up as s something! I think it'd be quite pleasant to see a mass of spider-men scaling their way up the new library, haha!

That is so funny .. does the management think its less strange to see a comic book character outside their window? What a tangled web they weaved!

So instead of looking out and seeing a worker in a uniform of some kind, I see a dude dressed up in kinky super hero pajamas? Oh yeah, that would make me feel much better!

I had the window washer show up in my office window about a foot from where I was sitting. Freaked me out! Very disturbing...I had to shut the shades. Spiderman appearing in the window would have sent me to the psych ward for a direct admit!

Ha! That is clever!

That's just hysterical! I think I'd be MORE freaked out seeing Spider Man out there, to be honest!
