Brazil Builds World's Largest Lego Tower 6

Posted by samzenpus

At 102 feet and 3 inches, the world's largest Lego tower resides in Sao Paulo, Brazil. An intense need to smash Lego constructs as a child means this beat my record by at least 100 feet.

    Nearly 6,000 Lego lovers in Sao Paulo, mostly children, helped put together the independent blocks of Lego bricks which were later stacked using a crane.

    The first Lego tower was built in London in 1988, since then Toronto, Moscow, Sydney, Tokyo and Munich have been among the cities which have held the title.

    That's a pretty fucking ingenious scam Lego's got going there. Each year, go to a new city and ask "wouldn't you like to have the world record for the world's largest lego tower?". And sales go through the roof in the host country until it's time to move the record onto the next country...

  • What are those metal pipes they are tightening in the video? That's not a lego tower, it's a steel tower with some lego bricks around it! Hey, I can build a lego tower as high as the Eiffel tower if I can just attach the bricks to the actual Eiffel tower.

A man is not complete until he is married -- then he is finished.
