Large advertisements on sides of buildings

Does your city have buildings with towering large advertisements on it's side?

Here's one in HK

The one in Brussels is very creative.

Honestly I like this idea of putting advertisements in the sides of buildings. It give a bit of color to the building's greyness.

Perhaps the largest of all? A 150 m tall commercial using the Dutch soccerplayer Edgar Davids on the tallest building of Rotterdam:

Theres a big 'Jonnie Walker' whiskey, advert on the Baiyoke Tower in BKK, with 'don't drink & drive' below it, had crossed my mind that it was the tallest advert in the world, but now Ive seen the 2IFC...wicked.



Here it is...



and heres the beast with a previous slogan.

There's one I saw in Manila in Ortigas Centre. It's that abandoned building right next to Megamall.

Now, I cant find a picture and it isn't towering however the exterior of Fort Dunlop in Bimringham has an enormous advert on it. It is more wide than tall though. It was featured in the Guiness Book of Records. I think it was 2004.
