Well it's official, we have a reached a new low in America's obesity epidemic.

Humanetics, the Michigan-based company that manufactures crash test dummies, will now be making fatter 270-pound models to better reflect the current population, compared to the previous 167 pound versions which were created in the '80s.

"The dummy is a little taller because the population is now taller — but to be frank, it's all in the butt, thighs and midsection because that's where the weight gain has occurred," said Humanetics CEO Chris O'Connor.

Good job 'Murica!
