Students at Grand Valley State found a golden opportunity to perform their own rendition of Miley Cyrus‘ “Wrecking Ball” music video after a few of them noticed that the school’s pendulum statue resembled the one used in said video.

The statue, which had been located outside the science facility for 18 years, has a long needle at the bottom and is designed to draw patterns in the sand when the ball is swung from side to side. It was originally designed by acclaimed American sculptor Dale Eldred.

Well now it’s gone thanks to the large number of students who posted videos to the internet of their escapades, some of which the students bare it all.

 A spokesperson from the university confirmed the statue’s removal in a statement:

“We are reassessing the safety and structural integrity of the current installation and site. Hopefully the pendulum can be reinstalled at that location or we can find another suitable location on campus so people can enjoy it as a piece of art and stay safe.”

Here’s a few examples we found:
