FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. — Hyundai used 11 Genesis sedans to help a 13-year-old girl from Houston, Texas, send a message to her father in space.

As part of their “A Message to Space” ad campaign, the company was tasked with using 11 vehicles to send a message to Stephanie’s father. The obstacle? He’s currently on the International Space Station.

Hyundai chose the Delamar Dry Lake in Nevada for the 2.14 square-mile “Steph <3’s you!” message.

The message is also the largest tire track image ever created, as determined by Guinness World Records.
