Well, this is an unusual mission, but we'll go with it. San Gabriel Valley's 626 Nightmarket has made it its quest to create the world's largest boba tea — large enough to outweigh a car. 

The Huffington Post reports that the tea cup will hold 320 gallons of boba tea, and the 626 workers need $9,000 to do it. From its Kickstarter: "The cup itself will be 6 feet tall situated on a 2.5 feet high platform. The straw will extend its height an additional 3.5' with a grand total height of 12 feet! It will hold 320 gallons of boba tea -- that's over 2,500 cups of your standard boba drink -- and will weigh heavier than an average sedan."

If 626 Nightmarket does raise the cash, the boba tea "will debut at their Aug. 3-4 Nightmarket event at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, and event organizers will slowly pour it out over the course of the weekend for customers." Frankly, we don't think we'd want to drink from that cup.
