The World's largest vinyl record
The record took 10 days to build from 250,000 square foot of printed vinyl, and spins at 17mph.

The company Pop2Life was responsible for the stunt, as a promotion for the reopening of the Forum venue in California. The Eagles' Hotel California was used, spinning on the roof of the iconic round building, iconic itself after going 16-times platinum.

Measuring 407 ft in diameter, the vinyl record went from concept to completion in just 45 days. Lettering on the record is as tall as the Hollywood sign, and it's visible from over a mile high.

The Forum's reopening will also be marked by The Eagles taking up a six-gig residency.
