Paintball Art: Icon Edition

This is a video of a group of paintballers/guerrilla artists who shoot into creation a portrait of Marilyn Monroe.
I'm curious as to how they recruited for this.

'Can you work with a team to create likenesses of people with a paintball gun in under a minute? We've got a job for you.'

It is fairly impressive, it just seems like an unnecessary bridging of hobbies. It's like when banging garbage cans was popular on Broadway for a while. I wonder what Marilyn would think of this.

Marilyn: 'So how are people remembering me nowadays?'
Rory: 'A bunch of rednecks just shot an orange and green picture of you onto a wall with paintballs.'
Marilyn: 'Oh.'
