Giant Pendulum At GVSU Removed After Students Kept Stripping Naked And Going Miley Cyrus “Wrecking Ball” On It

On the campus of Grand Valley State University resides a 500-pound artistic pendulum that etches designs in the sand below it as it swings back and forth, but you know what else it kinda looks like?…a WREEEEEEECKING BALLLLL….I CAME IN LIKE A WREEEEEEECKING BALLLLL! A GVSU Wrecking Ball Twitter account came to life to help spread the word.

Unfortunately, though, the account also most likely contributed to the early demise of the GVSU Wrecking Ball.

Per our tipster, the “GV Wrecking Ball” was removed by university officials after students kept taking photos and Vining themselves stripping down naked and riding it like Miley.

After several naked vines imitating Miley Cyrus, Grand Valley State University has taken down the pendulum structure better known as the GV Wrecking Ball – a campus landmark that had been up for years and established a tradition for incoming freshmen (the majority of GV students have ridden the ball at least once).

Here’s a clothes-on example:

Then we have these guys:

Here we have visual confirmation that it has, in fact, been removed. Wrecking Ball down.
