A New York restaurant is hoping to enter the record books with a hot dog weighing in at 66 pounds and stretching two feet across.
Feltman’s of Coney Island built the five-foot giant to mark 152 years since its founder, Charles Feltman, invented the hot dog.
Feltman’s has now submitted the measurements to the Guinness World Records and hopes to have the hot dog certified in the next three months.
After the weigh-in, it was cut up into small portions that were sold for $10, with proceeds going to the Headstrong Project, a non-profit organisation providing mental health care to veterans of combat.

No record for the largest hot dog currently exists, but the record for the longest hot dog currently stands at 203 metres.
The hot dog was invented by Charles Feltman, a German-American baker who emigrated to the United States aged 15 in 1856.
