Installing a [Wallpaper] mural

Hi all, new here :-)
I've been toying with the idea of installing a mural at home and I'd like to proceed with the installation myself. I found a video explaining the procedure but since I've never done anything of that sort myself, I'd like to know if anybody here ever installed something like that and how difficult it really was. In your opinion, can it be done by one person?
Here's the link to the video. Unfortunately it is in French...

Thanks in advance for any input!

It is just basically installing wallpaper except easier because it is peel and stick so no applying glue. However unlike wallpaper the width of the sheets would be difficult for one person.

Thx for the input!
Yes that is what I was afraid of, but I was wondering if someone had actually tried it ;-)

I used to work with a paper hanger that said he always charged whatever the price of the mural was. He said there was always the risk of one sheet getting damaged and that way if the worst happened - at least he didn't loose money on the job. He always had his brother as a helper.

I installed a big mural in the kitchen nook of our basement several years ago. It was a conventional wall paper & paste installation but each panel was around 3' wide, total width was 12'.

This looks to be some type of adhesive vinyl, maybe like a "Fathead" which is super easy to install and remove!
