There's just … something about this woman's smile.

Oh, it's made of Skittles.

Dry July is a campaign in Australia with a twofold purpose: It encourages people to set down the bottle for a month and go sober, while raising funds to support adults living with cancer.

They've marked the month with a series of challenges – including making the world's largest smoothie – and this video from TIG Media shows the most recent one: A 22-square-foot replica of Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa … created entirely out of Skittles.



The completed image took over 50,000 Skittles and more than 67 hours of combined labor. However, it earned Dry July a Guinness World Record and kept them sober, so, you know … worth it.
