WORLD'S LARGEST POSTER: The world record largest poster measured 52.1 m in width by 51.8 m in length, and represented Michael Jackson's 'Michael' album. It was unveiled in Hounslow, UK, on December 8, 2010, and was created by painter Kadir Nelson as a commission from Sony Music UK to promote the album. It took engineers three hours to install the poster near one of Heathrow’s main runways and viewable by all planes arriving or departing. The poster was made of PVC and weighed 1 tonne. http://community.guinnessworldrecords.com/_Largest-poster/blog/3106663/7691.html
