1. The Most Expensive Billboard to operate around the clock?
$1.3 billion a month!
A billboard for Skydive Dubai advertising sky diving tours over the Dubai skyline. But how could a billboard cost that much to operate? Because of a man who flies around the billboard in the air in a jet pack, which costs a staggering $500 per second. $1.3 billion amounts to the cost of fly time over a thirty day period.
The billboard involved a man with a jet pack, initially hidden on the billboard, who emerged from the billboard and flew around it for approximately 20-30 second increments.
