Anyone have any independent verification that the stadium has the largest display in the world? I tried to fact check that and there are many world records listed and it seems the stadium is not even in the top 10 of any of the lists.

360* video display screen with a world record for being the largest display screen of its kind.

Just as I thought, it's bogus.  Sounds like "This gets the award for being the best car in it's class."  Someone proves them wrong, they can say that their car is in a different class.

No, it's the largest 360* screen in a sports stadium.  The third sentence of the first Google result would have told you that, Mr Fact-Checker.

The video specifically states it has the world record for being the largest display screen of its kind.  It doesn’t say “in a sports stadium.”  “Of its kind” can be modified at any time to be exclusive.  Once one is larger, of its kind can be interpreted to be “paid for by Mercedes.”  

Try to find that screen in the official Guinness Book of World Records.  Its not there but other screens are.  You should wonder why. They list largest OLED screen, largest LCD screen, largest LED screen, largest permanent projection screen, largest permanent IMAX screen but falls short of listing the  360 degree screen in a sports stadium or even mention the Mercedes-Benz Stadium for anything.

Moral of the story is to not blindly believe anything on the internet unless you validate it yourself.

Actually, the video says "360-degree video display screen with a world record for being the largest display screen of its kind."  

I took that to mean 360-degree video display screen, funnily enough.  If they hadn't said 'of its kind', I would assume it meant the largest screen, just as you incorrectly presumed.

Moral of the story is: pay attention to what people actually claim rather than arguing with your assumptions.  

You are literally the worst person at fact-checking I have encountered.  You don't even check the right fact!
