The Clean Cut: Dude Perfect takes on 11 basketball world records, one from 533 feet

Posted May 21

Two days, five guys and 11 world records later, this YouTube video has garnered nearly 5 million views.

Dude Perfect, a sports entertainment group, broke 10 basketball-related Guinness World Records and tied the Harlem Globetrotters for another.

These records included the longest blindfolded hook shot, the most free throws made in one minute by two people, the longest bounce shot and the longest sitting basketball shot.

ABC News compared Dude Perfect's final trick shot, which was performed from the top of a 533-foot building, to a Larry Bird and Michael Jordan McDonald’s commercial. The 1993 commercial featured the two players standing on top of a skyscraper to make a shot.

“These guys from Dude Perfect just sort of made that a reality,” said the report.

In addition to the group’s following on YouTube, Dude Perfect has a show on CMT called “The Dude Perfect Show" that airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. MDT.
