Look, up in the sky! It's a bird, it's a plane, it's…a hot dog? Yes, 955 of them of them to be exact. In honor of the landmark American Coney Island restaurant's 95th anniversary, the restaurant teamed up with Detroit station 95.5 to host a hot-dog hoarding contest at Detroit's Hype Athletics Facility Wednesday morning.

According to American Coney Island Restaurant owner Grace Keros, 955 hot dogs weigh about 140 lbs. That's 140 lbs of processed meat. Or as Seros affectionately corrects, "hundreds of specialty seasoned Coney Dogs."

Who couldn't pass that up?

About 100 Coney-aficionados flocked to the open field that the restaurant had rented to participate in a stuffing contest. Twenty-five of them then rushed around the field trying to stuff as many of the hot dogs on their person as they could in 95 seconds, stuffing them in their pockets, shirts, and who knows what other orifices.

The winner carried away $1,000 and American Coneys for a year.
