ummm how do they stick them to the wall ?

edit:
nvm, just found the FAQ

"Did you have to glue the caps to the wall?
Nope - we let the magnetic sheeting do most of the work."

Creative and perfect viral ad for the company as well. It made me Google up Keg Works.

Hmm if you can put 20 caps up per minute (which is more than it looks, spending 3 seconds to push one there), then to complete 60,000 caps it takes 50 man-hours.

Divide it by 43 employees. I doubt it took them 3 months!

I suspect a viral-ad-attempt instead.

With a quick eye scan.. I highly doubt that there is more than 6000 caps on that wall

#5 you are correct but we shouldn't undermine the efforts of the people involved drinking enough beer to get all that caps.

Now take three caps out in the middle so all the people with 'OCD' start to lose their shit.

Didn't you notice that they are all oriented differently? They need to all be oriented the same way...

#5 I reckon it took that much time to gather all the caps and arrange them.

#6 your eyes deceive you. A quick division of height by cap diameter, or a quick glance at the end of the video tells you it's about 100 caps high. So a single "square" with the height of the room contains ~10000 caps. As the wall is much wider than tall, it comes to several times that. It could easily be more than 60k.

#6 I think I see what you did there. You multiplied 12 inches times 459 square feet and got 5508 and thought that was square inches. Since a bottle cap is 26 mm and one inch is 25.4mm I can see where you got your quick figure. However there are 144 square inches per square foot. 144 times 459 equals 66096 square inches on the wall. Since the bottle caps are just a bit larger than a square inch I think we can safely give Keg Works their 60K bottle caps.

I wonder if there is a way to suddenly demagnetize the wall? EMP perhaps? Mythbusters get to work!!!
