Watch Dude Perfect Hit a 500-Foot Trick Shot from Reunion Tower

Dude Perfect, for those who are still unaware, is a quintet of A&M grads who found YouTube stardom after posting a clip of themselves hitting absurdly difficult basketball shots in a Texas backyard. Their few dozen encores have followed a similar pattern: make an elaborately conceived trick shot, celebrate it with an equally elaborate series of chest bumps and high-fives.

A couple of weeks back, they took their talents to Reunion Tower. They released the video of the shot -- 561 feet from the observation deck to a basketball hoop below -- this week. It should spoil nothing to say that it's a swish.

For those who can't sit through all three-and-a-half minutes, here's the money shot:
