Crews in Las Vegas used two cranes to up the ante on a key landmark that needed a wardrobe change.
The workers began transforming the 150-ft.-tall Statue of Liberty replica that sits in front of MGM Resorts' New York New York Hotel & Casino with an enormous Vegas Golden Knights jersey, just in time for the team to take on the Kings in Game 2 of the Playoffs, NHL.com reported.
Work began on the project in the middle of the night between April 12 and April 13, when a crew of eight was suspended in two baskets supported by cranes to drape the statue in the 6,000-sq.-ft., 620-lb. jersey. The process took about five hours. Two days earlier, the workers had tried to dress Lady Liberty in time for Game 1, but wind gusts delayed the project, NHL.com reported.
According to Golden Knights Chief Marketing Officer Brian Killingsworth, the idea of dressing the statue in a jersey was actually on the table for next season, but when the Golden Knights qualified for the Stanley Cup in their very first season, the plan was expedited.
