"Moving Goal Shot" - well, I'd be more impressed if this was a goal moving on a truck as it drove by. Moving the goal under the ball seems a bit less challenging.

All those cameras and yet not a single camera on the ground showing impact at real speed.


Hmmmmm.........

Seriously, the thing is so over edited I'm not even sure I believe there is a city called Dallas.

Exactly..  The little time they showed it entering hoop it swirled around which.. NO.. At that speed that ball should have easily ricocheted off the ground so fast it could have bounced back and give one of those retards a concussion.

Something about making long shots from high places in Texas I guess.

dallas! think about it. i'm not a jfk conspiracy nut but if you think about the bullet, that tower,the basketball, the book respository, that parking lot has a grassy knoll type area, a MOVING TARGET...

i'm not saying there is something to this but there is something to this.

"A basketball shot from a 500 foot tower into a moving goal"

Not exactly what they did now is it. More appropriate title would be "Moving a basketball goal to line up with a ball dropped from 500 feet".

I think it's more like "Shiatty viral marketing attempt was shiatty."

Suggests that the terminal velocity of a basketball is 45 miles per hour. That's not all that inconsistent with what the video portrayed. (I would have expected a much harder impact as well.)

The goalposts often move on Fark, but that's the first time I've seen a video of it happening.

Are people really still buying into this "Dude Perfect" crap?

So they had more than one camera near the hoop at ground level, but they don't bother to show the "swish" from either one?  Hmm...

Also, I wonder how many different tosses they edited into one.

"But rather than admit to a conspiracy or investigate further, the Fark Commission chose to endorse the theory put forward by an ambitious junior Farker, MooseUpNorth - one of the grossest links ever forced on the Farkistani people. We've come to know it as the 'Magic Basketball Theory.' This slow-basketball explanation is the foundation of the Fark Commission's claim of a genuine basket."
