(CNN) - John Deere employees in northwest Illinois are working to show people they can do anything... including breaking a world record.
They're using hundreds of thousands of canned foods to build a life-size replica of the company's new S-series
Workers are hoping to create the largest canned food sculpture the world has ever seen.
The current record was set in Thailand in March, with more than 247,000 cans.
The workers here hope to have more than 300,000 cans in their sculpture when they're done.
The can combine is expected to be on display until mid-December.
After that, the cans will be donated to a food bank.
