World's biggest pile of leaves by And Finally

It's something we've all done as children once autumn sets in and piles of leaves start to cover the ground.

But while most of us have only kicked a stray pile of brown leaves or maybe fallen into a small mound if we're lucky, a group of friends have taken the autumnal activity to a whole new level.

Pranksters Nick Garrett, Lewis Jenkins and Trent Hales collected the enormous hoard of leaves in Utah before dumping their stash outside a house and jumping into it from a nearby roof.

The trio boasted that their giant haul resulted in a leaf mountain which was 17ft high, containing over 1,000 bags of leaves.

A video montage of the three pals gleefully jumping into the pile has since gone viral, gaining over 750,000 YouTube views in three days.

The men leap in tandem into the leaves, before inviting friends to join them in backflipping and somersaulting into the makeshift landing area.

They comment at the end of the video: "And before all of you start commenting on how you don't think it's 17 feet. Obviously it got shorter with each jump."
