Well, OK - but part of its fame is from its inclusion in the books and the OEIS.

A53 is THE subway sequence, and it was one of the original sequencesin the database in 1964.It is one of the first sequences that peopleask about  when they hear about the OEIS.It has appeared in many books,and it would of course be accepted today.Right from the start, one of the explictly stated goals of the OEIS was tohelp people solve IQ tests.Best regardsNeilNeil J.
