WZZM13.com reports that Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan removed a pendulum statue from their campus after students filmed themselves swinging from it, trying to re-enact Miley Cyrus from her popular music video, "Wrecking Ball."
The steel ball statue at the college has stood outside the Padnos Hall of Science since 1995. It has now been removed and put into storage by university officials after YouTube videos and Vine clips of students recreating the Cyrus music video appeared online.
Tim Thimmesch, the associate vice president of facilities services at the university stated: "We've been reviewing this over the last couple of weeks, trying to decide whether we really need to look at structural integrity of the installation. We decided to have the ball removed and put into storage for now."
