Funko, the global pop culture purveyors, added to the summer activities at Dubai’s world-famous Mall of the Emirates last week by breaking the Guinness World Records™ for the world’s largest mosaic creation.
Using an incredible 8,600 Pop! Vinyl figures to create the largest packaged product mosaic, in honour of Modesh, Dubai’s well-loved mascot, and all within 16 hours - the record was officially bestowed on Sunday 16 August, following four days of build-up, and an amped up crowd. The final creation measures an impressive 157.7 m².
Danny Hickson, official adjudicator from Guinness World Records, said: “This is another proud moment for the UAE to add a new title to its wide collection of world records. Thousands of Pop! Vinyl products were used to celebrate Funko collectors around the world and what better way than with a Guinness World Records title.”
Shaddy Gaad, senior marketing manager, Guinness World Records, added: “We congratulate Funko, Mall of the Emirates and Dubai Summer Surprises on their achievement.”
Motasem Ahmed, co-founder of Monkey Distribution (Funko distributor in the Middle East) said: “What a way to end the Summer than by breaking a world record! We hope everyone loves Modesh’s mosaic as much as we loved creating it!”
