New York City's Times Square is known for huge events, but this one towered above the rest -- literally.

Emmy-winning choreographer Josh Bergasse (Smash, So You Think You Can Dance) put together an exciting Broadway-inspired dance featuring 16-foot-tall puppets, professional dancers and acrobats for an all-day theatrical event celebrating the launch of LG's TWIN Wash with SideKick pedestal washer on Tuesday in Father Duffy Square in Times Square.

"I think this was definitely the craziest thing that I've ever worked on," Bergasse told ET.

While Bergasse was an integral part of the event, he had to cram to put everything together during the final months of the process.

"LG's been working on this for over a year," Bergasse said. "I've been working on it for two or three months -- from the design aspect of the puppets to actually getting into rehearsals and discovering how the puppets move, and then rehearsing separately with the dancers and then finally integrating all that together."

Watch the video to see how all of Bergasse's hard work paid off.
