Dubai Real Estate Ad Takes Record For Biggest Outdoor Ad Ever

dubai_outdoor_ad.jpg

Elvis from Dubai just informed us that Ad-Air, which builds "bird's-eye billboards" for airline travelers (or aliens?) that aren't visible from the ground, has just set the world record for "largest advertising banner" with the launch of its first effort for the Dubai airport.

It kind of makes sense that a country that can afford to put snow in the desert is now also hosting the largest ad ever. The spot is for Sorough Real Estate and covers over 20,000 square meters (the size of more than two soccer pitches).

The Guardian says a Guinness Book of World Records Inspector came out and designated the ad as the record-holder for banner size. All we can say is, we're glad the record-holder wasn't Eva Longoria for Maxim or an iPod.

Two football fields is the same as 20,000 square miles? That doesn't seem right.
