Watch this trick shot from atop a moving roller coaster

Friday August 7th, 2015

An impressive new trick shot video shows a thrill-seeker tossing a basketball out of a moving roller coaster and into a waiting hoop at the Santa Monica Pier in California.

The video appears very much to be real, which calls into question a lot of things: how did you get a basketball past the ride operators, and how many times did the shooter have to ride the roller coaster before making the basket?

Regardless of the behind-the-scenes dealings necessary to get this shot off it is certainly one of the more impressive makes in the YouTube trick shot canon.
