Motorola claims Dubai advert is longest ever

Motorola Mobility, which has been recently acquired by Google Inc., has said it has created "the world's longest indoor advert," The National has reported. Based at Dubai International Airport, the advertisement spans 222.65 metres, and takes more than five minutes to pass the advert on the airport's moving walkway, or about three minutes when walking in a conventional manner. The advertisement features nine illuminated panels, which tell the story of Motorola's formation 80 years ago. The company has applied to Guinness World Records over its advertisement, which runs the length of the walkway between the Terminal 1 check-in area and duty free.
