http://thepennyfloor.com/ - using currency as a flooring material, gluing pennies to the floor with construction adhesive, grouting, and then covering with a clear coat.

Labor intensive... but dang cheap!
Well... the video shows 'em using PL Premium to glue the pennies down. It so happens that I've used a lot of PL Premium recently, have a rough idea of what it costs, and that should be showing up in their cost per square foot. It isn't. They also don't show the price of whatever the clear coat is they put over, that could also jack up things a lot...
But I do think it's cool!
The cost of an installed clear-coat (polyurea) for a 26 x 22 garage was about $6k last summer. I think it would have been about $4k for regular epoxy, which has the disadvantage of yellowing more if exposed to the sun. Divide by 2.5 to scale down the the square footage they actually had, and you're talking $1.3-2k. Roughly triple the cost of the coins.

Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
