Attention to Detail: Animated placeholder text on eventim.de

Today I spotted an interesting UI idea on eventim.de. In order to highlight the search field on the main page and remind the users to use this function, eventim uses an animated placeholder text in the input field. They are showing 6 different examples of search terms (additionally, the terms seem to represent current popular artists and events).

I’m not quite sure about the effectiveness of this technique but like the approach. It would be really interesting to know some numbers or results of A/B and usability tests. What do you think?
