A Message to Space

And since the message was bigger than one and a half Central Parks, Guinness World Records certified it to be the world's "largest tire track image."

Canadian airline WestJet is hoping to follow up on the huge success of last year's 'Christmas Miracle' campaign, in which the airline bought personalised gifts for a flight of unsuspecting passengers. The campaign video went viral and got over 36 million YouTube views.
