That's one long elevator ride. My phone doesn't work so well in elevators either.

See, I came here to make some snide Terry Riley In C joke, and then I decided I should actually watch the video, and I'll be damned! It has some qualities of In C, and I find it more interesting than it probably is because of that.

Someone really should send them the score to In C (.pdf) and have them arrange that for their phones. That would be groovy. Or maybe grøøvy. Or grövy? Finnish is not my strong point.

It would be gruuvi, and yes, that word is actually used for "groovy" in Finnish. The letter "y" is pronounced like "u" in Finnish; "o" is always "o", and "ö" is always "ö", pronounced like "ehh".
