Explains This!

Last summer, drivers heading to and form the airport in Munich, Germany, saw an eyeful. To celebrate the 2006 World Cup, the Sportswear company Adidas created a massive billboard showing Oliver Kahn, a goalkeeper for the German national soccer team, catching a ball. The billboard measured a whopping 65 meters (213 feet) across. The real Kahn stands at 1.88 m (6 ft 2 in.). To construct the billboard, builders used 9,800 screws, 113 tons of steel, and 11 kilometers (7 miles) of steel beams.
