Unknown Girl Starts an Internet Sensation

A cute blonde girl in a shopping center of some sort started the new fun activity of propelling your body in circles like a helicopter using the handrails of adjacent escalators. It seems no one knows who this pioneer is, but she started a new phenomenon and there have been countless imitators who aspire to succeed as well as she.

Not only is she the originator of the stunt, but she is the master, keeping perfect form, using her rigid body to rotate several times before sticking a solid dismount. If you know who she is, do let us know so we can give her the credit she deserves.
