YouTuber Dude Perfect is known for making incredible trick shots, especially with basketballs, which often look unbelievable. In his recent video too, he attempted a feat that ended up creating a world record. He threw a basketball from the height of 856 feet and made it pass through the hoop. His act left people immensely impressed and also received a response from Guinness World Records (GWR).
“World’s Highest Basketball Shot,” the YouTuber wrote as he shared the video. The clip opens to show him and his team members explaining what they are attempting to do. They also have a video call with their friends, one of whom says that it is “scientifically impossible” and that “he will eat a basketball” if Dude Perfect makes the shot. As the video progresses, viewers get to see a recollection of all the basketball-related stunts that Dude Perfect previously tried. The clip then captures them going to Las Vegas and also shows their preparations for the record. It also shows how many times they fail while trying to make the shot. The video ends with Dude Perfect impeccably acing the record.
