Elevator - Marilyn Monroe

Lift (Elevator) to give a "7 Year Itch" effect
  (+4)

A lift with floor and ceiling that allow air flow through, on the way down, the airflow will appear to be up (when compared to the lift floor) and you will get an effect as in the "7 Year Itch" with Marilyn Monroe (see link). The effect on the upward trip will be less spectacular.

There may also be an upside in reduced energy usage pushing the lift through the column of air in the lift well.

       You need an elevator with a metal grating floor and ceiling. But those are Baked - they are used on building sites and in industrial settings.   

       If you can't find a building site, just bring your date to New York and stand her over a subway grating.

       it would have to have a glass exterior like the one at rockafellar center so all can enjoy the marilyn experience.

       For a second there, I was thinking 'Marilyn Manson Elevator Music,' and was questioning who would be more insulted by such an endeavor, Manson or Musak companies.

       I was thinking 'riding Marilyn Monroe', and some other not-for-public thoughts. Then, it occured to me, in her day, everyone had been on that ride (including JFK?).

       Apparently JFK was one of those wham, bam, thank-you ma'am kind of guys, which seems a bit of a shame for Marilyn (not to mention Jackie and all the rest of them).
