A Philadelphia skyscraper was recently turned into a video game screen to help set a new Guinness world record.

Drexel University professor Frank Lee played a supersized version of the classic Atari video game Pong on the side of the Cira Centre last spring. The feat has now gained him new notoriety because the Guinness World Record committee has deemed it an official world record for the largest architectural video game display, The Associated Press reported.

Gaming enthusiasts from all over the U.S. gathered last April to watch hundreds of embedded LED lights shine on the building, essentially creating a 60,000-square-foot screen. The joystick used to play the game was located about a mile away.
