Many Sports Illustrated swimsuit models are figuratively larger than life, so it’s only natural someone found a way to make them literally so.

Pearl Media created one of the largest 3D mapping projections ever, wallpapering the exterior of Caesars Palace Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas with a 51,000-square-foot tall launch for the 2013 special issue of the magazine.

The poolside show, “7 Continents, 17 Wonders of the World,” gave attendees an eyeful of these bathing beauties, including two-time cover model Kate Upton, surrounded by 3D images and animation by Go2 Productions. The show was so lifelike, we’re sure some of the men who watched will tell their buddies they spent part of their Valentine’s Day with one of these lovely ladies.

Check out the video here:


The event was also watched by thousands of people as it was live streamed across the web on several websites. Although unless you have a 51,000-square-foot screen at home, we’re guessing some of the eye-popping effect was probably lost.

While this is certainly the most high-profile and widely seen of Pearl’s shows this year, the company has also made a downtown Los Angeles building disappear on behalf of LoopNet, projected a 2012 NFL season “Rajun Tailgate” recap for Pepsi in New Orleans at the Super Bowl, and created a projection experience for the opening of Tommy Hilfiger’s first Beverly Hills store.
