Guinness World Records: A 660-Foot Basketball Shot Off A Waterfall

January 22, 2018

This is a video of the guys from Youtube channel How Ridiculous setting the Guinness World Record for highest basketball shot with a 660-footer from the top of Maletsunyane Falls in Lesotho, Africa (previously: a 583-foot shot by a Harlem Globetrotter from the Tower Of The Americas in San Antonio, Texas). Cool to watch, but they mention spending six days filming at the falls, which, as far as I'm concerned (and I'm always very concerned), makes this less of a record in amazing basketball shots and more of a record in perseverance and cutting tens of hours of misses down to a few seconds. So....congratulations? "You're just jealous." That was supposed to be my glory.

Keep going for the video. Actual shot at 0:50.

Thanks to Brett and n0entity, who agree the greatest basketball shots of all time are in Space Jam and Air Bud.

    Sooo the question on my mind is, how many basketballs did they bring with them and; do they explode on impact from that height?

    There are several laying amongst the rocks surrounding the basketball hoop and they appear to all be intact.
    I'm curious as to how many are laying down there and how many floated away in the river. :-)

    I'm pretty surprised this isn't those Dude Perfect guys. Isn't this like their whole thing?

    I like that he's wearing a helmet, just in case he falls off. Safety first!

  • Closet Nerd

    Keep waiting for him to fall when he throws it....

    8 hours a day for 6 days straight, throwing basketballs off a cliff, in pursuit of a Guinness World Record. Wish I had that kinda spare time.

    When I murder all the other rulers and take my place as rightful tyrant of Earth you will get ONE ATTEMPT at setting any type of trick shooting record. I think this and my comprehensive health care plan will really solidify my position.

    Shoulda kept mining bit coins.

    What's the world record for time wasted in pursuit of a world record?
