Let’s be honest: we all love trick shots. They’re fun, astonishing, and entertainingly unbelievable. (good trick shots, that is) Sports lovers can really appreciate the skill and technique put into many of these trick shots, and even for those of us who don’t particularly like sports, trick shots are just as amazing and fun to watch. With over 8.7 million subscribers and 1.4 billion views, it’s pretty clear that one YouTube channel has become the leading suppliers of amazing trick shots on the Internet: Dude Perfect. Dude Perfect is a group of five guys, Coby and Cory Cotton, Garrett Hilbert, Cody Jones, and Tyler Toney, all of which are very good athletes and skilled in many sports. On their channel they make trick shot videos, usually themed, that are packed full of entertaining and quite frankly astounding trick shots.
To understand what I mean, you just have to watch their videos yourself. Sports stars like basketball star Lebron James, football star Tom Brady and skateboarding star Rob Dyrdek have all praised the channel, and it doesn’t take becoming legend in your sport to love their videos. The video above one of Dude Perfect’s most viewed videos with over 27 million views, and is a great example of how Dude Perfect can make a fun trick shot video out of pretty much anything.
Instead of basketballs, footballs, or baseballs, the usual balls of choice, the guys made a whole video of doing trick shots with just ping pong balls and the classic thin, cylindrical Pringles can. From amazing off-the-wall throws to flips and slam dunks, the video shows just how great Dude Perfect are at trick shots even with ping pong balls. And while the video above is very entertaining, it isn’t even close to the best that the team can do. Every once in a while they make a shot, such as a swish from inside a stadium into a hoop outside, that just is absolutely mindblowing, and that makes watching the video all worth it. In short, Dude Perfect have dominated the trick shot market online and are to this day one of, if not the best, trick shot channel on YouTube.
