He enlisted the aid of nearly 4,500 troops for his campaign, but in the end there were zero casualties, and anyone privileged to view the end result was a winner.

Jacob Feazel, a senior at Maconaquah High School, in Bunker Hill, Ind., began by spray-painting toy soldiers red, white, or blue to make his outsize American flag.

A video of the project that has gone viral reveals that it took Feazel 11 days and 30 cans of spray paint to achieve the desired effect and to glue the 4,466 figures to a 4′-by-6′ wooden platform.

The teen’s art project was welcome at the school, which he describes as “a very patriotic place.”
