How many cans do you think it would take to break the world record for biggest pyramid?

Students on the Cranford Teen Advisory Board in New Jersey put that question to the test and, according to NJ.com, they have apparently succeeded in setting a new world record for building the largest pyramid constructed out of cans.

Yahoo! News says the teens collected over 25,000 cans to complete this project, and about 20,000 of them were donated by ShopRite.

Not only did these high schoolers have fun spending an entire Saturday on the project -- NJ.com says they worked from 8:00 in the morning until 10:00 at night -- but all of the cans will be donated to victims of Hurricane Sandy by way of the New Jersey Food Bank, Cranford Family Care and the Salvation Army Plainfield Corps, according to NJToday.net .

Apparently the teens are still waiting to hear back from Guinness World Records for official documentation, but they shouldn't have anything to worry about since the last record holder used 17,575 cans to build a pyramid in 2011.

In other teens-breaking-strange-world-records news, in April, Los Alamitos High School students also set out to earn a spot in the Guinness Book for the largest high school Harlem Shake. With more than 3,000 students in the video, it's possible their attempt might become an official record. And a group of teens in Spearville, Kansas also tried to build the world's largest snowball back in March, according to DodgeGlobe.com. After a snow storm and some online research, Logan Durler, Hunter Stephenson and Rock Strecker Jr. came up with a snowball 7 feet 7 inches tall and 25 feet in circumference.
