Worlds Largest Sounding Trumpet set Guinness world Record 2010 - Hyundai SA

Hyundai South Africa has unveiled the world's largest Vuvuzela ahead of the 2010 World Cup. This monumental masterpiece, has been installed on the Cape Town unfinished highway, has been created as part of Hyundai's national "Gees" campaign and is aimed at encouraging South African's to come together and "bring the Gees" in celebration of the world's greatest sporting event to hit our shores, the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Construction is underway for what is set to break the Guinness World Record for being the largest sounding trumpet in the world. This gigantic structure is a whopping 35 meters in length and 5.5 meters in diameter. Current record is documented at 32 meters. "The construction started close to three months ago," says CEO of Hyundai South Africa, Alan Ross. "The structure had to be built a section at a time and each will have to be transported separately to the site for the final installation which took two days to finish."

The highway, which is en-route to the Green Point Stadium, has become a symbolic landmark in the City of Cape Town. It is perfectly positioned with some of the city's major attractions; the V&A Waterfront and the Cape Town International Convention Centre. "It is the ideal platform to use to contribute to the excitement around this historic event - we welcome the world to our country in a true South African way," adds Alan. "This project is truly about bringing people from all walks of life, together to celebrate the game of soccer. There is certainly no better way to do this other than using an icon that is a true and unique representation of the game in our country".
