Ridiculous Trick Shot Guys Officially Set World Record For, Well, Ridiculous Trick Shots
May 18 / Gregg Sussman / SportsGrid
Have you ever thought about how cool it would be to hold a world record? To have nobody in the world with a better go at something than you? Well, the guys at Dude Perfect just did this 11 times in one video. Dude Perfect, a group of guys that set out to hit ridiculous shots in almost every sport, have been hitting these absurd shots since 2009. They started off by doing basketball trick shots but have since expanded to just about every imaginable sport including golf, football, and even archery. Their YouTube channel has close to 10 million followers and now they can officially call themselves world record holders.
Their world record video, produced by Whistle Sports, has currently over 4 million YouTube views. Some of the records set in the video include a 533 foot shot from the top of Cotter Ranch tower in Oklahoma City, as well as a record previously claimed by Dwight Howard (the longest shot ever made sitting down). Like we said, these guys are just stupid good at hitting stupid shots.At 5:08 in the video below, you can even see Guinness World Record adjudicator Michael Empric throw his hands in the air, saying WTF just happened? Like most of their videos, you’re going to have to watch to be as amazed as we were.
They have claimed to break world records in the past, but until now, were unable to have their work verified. While we’re sure this took more than one attempt to break all these records, (we’ll assume it’s something like 3289 attempts per shot), at at 5:54, they claim it was only on take. Yeah...probably not. Even still, props to these guys.
