Watch: Basketball trick shot from 415-foot dam
Monday June 15th, 2015

Not wanting to be outshined by Australian basketball sensation Matthew Dellavedova, Aussie trick shot artists How Ridiculous went to the top of Tasmania's Gordon Dam to do something Dellavedova never did. 

The guys have already hit a shot from the top of Rotterdam's Euromast, 293 feet up. This time they went 415 feet up, to set what they say is a new world record.

The ball curved with the wind but still didn't hit the rim as it went through the hoop. 

Of course, it took more than one attempt to make the shot, and one unfortunate ball popped when it hit the ground
