They should have this Lindsey Buckingham (Fleetwood Mac Guitarist) song playing on loudspeakers throughout the property.



Or a full-size replica of the Buckingham fountain in Chicago in front of this building. For those that don't remember this was the one shown on the opening credits in the TV show "Married With Children."  :)
