Reebok CrossFit launch creates world record street art

I love seeing what brand's accomplish when they set out to break a world records - usually it's a product launch that inspires this creativity. Encouraged by the value of earned media through social media and the internet, some truly spectacular results are achieved in the name of 'viral marketing'.  

Here's an example from Reebok's launch of CrossFit - as envied on Adverblog

The process of creating the world's largest (and longest) street art piece - images from Super Punch
The wider campaign links to the Reebok Facebook page, where fans can participate in an 'extreme' workout session with Reebok CrossFit team and then share their results on the Reebok Facebook page


Background from Adverblog: Reebok wanted to create a backdrop of truly epic proportions for their range Cross Fit. Hopping on the 3D street art craze, they commissioned artists 3D Joe and Max to break the Guinness World Record for the largest ever 3D street art piece.
The painting was created in a week amidst fog and rain at London’s West India Quays, Canary Wharf. Anyone could then take part in a Reebok CrossFit WOD (workout of the day) on the 1,160.4m² artwork. I hope the exercise was countering the English November weather well.
