Rube Goldberg Trick Shot Dunk Fail
On the hierarchy of trick shot videos, the "dunk trick shot" is damn near the bottom (at least in terms of difficulty). It is the easiest shot in the sport, which is why any trick shot video involving a dunk is probably better described as a "trick pass video," because the dunking aspect is undeniably the easiest part. Trick shot dunks are things you put together at a pool party. They're not that impressive when you're used to watching people drain shots from hot air balloons.
This is almost always the case, unless of course, the steps leading up to said dunk involve a zany Rube Goldberg contraption. In all honesty, Rube Goldberg devices make just about anything way harder/awesomer. Just look at how Spongebob gets dressed every morning. It's insane.
YouTube star nigahiga got 20 of his friends together to pull off a trick shot dunk that took all of one minute and thirty seconds to complete -- er, to finish...er, to stop passing the ball around. Almost more impressive than the actual trick shot itself -- which winds through and out of someone's home (and down the street) -- is how they filmed the ball the entire time without switching cameras. It's an incredibly complicated shoot, which makes the ending all the more disappointing.
