Sort of like a giant fish tank, the billboard is a box full of water (11,500 gallons of water to be precise), and aims to inspire the women in Dubai to get swimming – by showcasing actual women swimming. Makes sense. 

Built to support the launch of its range of accessible women's swimwear, the sportswear giant wanted to address the decline in women's confidence to get into the water. For more awesome advertising on a giant scale, see our list of the best billboard advertising around.
