Renowned artist Chris Gilmour created a cardboard London replica that can best be described as "astounding." Gilmour was working for Bankers Box, a box and storage company, and was tasked with building cardboard replicas of London, Berlin and Paris. The London replica was built over a period of only two days and is some 40-feet wide. It features iconic London landmarks, such as the River Thames and Big Ben.

One of the more awesome features of the cardboard London replica is the fact that the Tower Bridge and the Big Eye both work. Projects like these are a great way to advertise traditionally tame businesses that aren't overtly interesting -- how many ad campaigns for box and storage companies do you actually remember?
