How Ridiculous! World Record Basketball Shot

The best game of H-O-R-S-E was a fun video to watch but these kids took their basketball trick shots to a whole new level. (Literally) Using the Euromast observation tower in Rotterdam, Netherlands, the How Ridiculous team completed the world record basketball shot of 98 meters. For the American readers, they made this shot from about 321 feet. That’s almost as tall as the Statue of Liberty.

The video was put together by the group over at How Ridiculous. Who is How Ridiculous? They are a group of young guys passionate about sport, trick shots and making a difference. They want to inspire people to live selflessly, give generously and join them in the fight against child poverty.


How Ridiculous Mission:

Whether you like it or not, the reality is that over 1 billion children are living in poverty right now. That’s almost 15% of the world’s population. That’s a big stat but don’t forget that they are individual human beings, just like you and me. These children are denied food, education, safety, dignity, and more. Without these things children struggle to grow and develop in the best way possible. How can we ignore their cry for help?


As we each do our bit, we can be the generation that truly brings change in our world. Our hope is that you will choose to join us in the fight against child poverty. So only one question remains, what will you do?
