Facebook QR Code, Menlo Park

Facebook staff have painted a giant 42-foot QR code on the roof of the building at their Menlo Park, California campus.

"Hack yeah! I’d like to paint a gigantic QR code somewhere so we can RickRoll online maps, or point people to our careers site, or send them to a ‘Clarissa Explains it All’ GeoCities Page,” Pike wrote in a Facebook post that became the catalyst for a late-night rooftop painting session.

"The next time you zoom in on Facebook from a satellite map or find yourself flying into SFO, take a close look at our roof,” Pike said. "We can’t promise you wont be Rick Rolled, but we can promise something cool."
