SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A South Portland record store is going viral with a picture of a firewalk made out of Lego toys.

The Portland Press Herald (http://bit.ly/1jCB2Oo ) reports Friday that Bull Moose’s picture of a bed of Legos made to resemble hot coals is up to 186,000 likes and 76,600 shares on Facebook. Star Trek actor George Takei linked the photo, generating tons of attention. Takei is famous for sharing humorous pictures on his Facebook page.

The photo shows a 12-foot carpet covered with Legos. People who made it across the bed without shoes or socks were able to buy the Lego movie for half price.

The offer lasted for an hour on Tuesday and the Legos were removed on Tuesday night. A store manager was the first person to post the photo.
