Post-It 30th anniversary billboard unveiling

From the Wall Street Journal:

“…3M Co., which is behind Post-it Notes, asked the actress Angela Kinsey to come to New York to unveil the world’s largest billboard made with Post-it Notes at Grand Central Terminal on Tuesday. By world’s largest, we mean 40 feet by 44 feet, 3,700 pounds and made of more than 100,000 Post-it Super Sticky Notes applied over the course of 320-plus hours.

I don’t want to say yes to everything, but I actually use Clairol and have touched up my roots. And I have a little message center with Post-its and pens. I also recycle paper. I use both sides of a note pad.””
