Why does this farm field have a C.S.I. logo on it?

Why is there a C.S.I. logo carved into this farmer's field?

It's got to be an attempt at a viral ad aimed at people taking off from Sea-Tac airport. But does anyone even notice it? I haven't been able to find anything online about it, but Google's shot may be a few years old.

I've noticed that some Target stores have a Target logo painted on top, which is pretty neat. Are there any other examples of aerial-view-only advertisements?

Best answer: I used bing.com maps which allowed me to get a closer view. It appears to just be a themed maze for people to trek through. Farms near me in MD do these every year. Often doing different themes like Pirates, etc.

On second look, google allows you to get close enough to see it's a map as well but the bing map managed to catch 35 possible map paying customer cars in the parking lot to the right.

Response by poster: A corn maze does make way more sense. I was distracted by the field's proximity to an airport, and by an episode of C.S.I. featuring crop circles.

Still interested in other crazy theories, of course.

Best answer: It appears to be the Schilter Family Farm, they sell fruits, veggies, christmas trees and run a corn maze. If you do a google map search on their famr name, it brings you right to that csi maze.

Best answer: Yeah, it's listed on this page of corn mazes on their site.
