When it comes to the art of watching stuff, the internet is effectively split into things you wished you’d never watched, things you’re glad you’ve watched but aren’t in a rush to watch again, and things you could happily watch over and over and over again until either the heat death of the universe or your own death. This insane basketball video. This one right here. Well, it’s, erm….we literally can’t stop watching it.
Filmed at the Mauvoisin Dam in Switzerland, the world’s second largest arch dam, the ‘How Ridiculous’ YouTube upload shows a basketball being lobbed into a net from 593 feet (180m) up. A man known simply as Derek, according to the description, is the person responsible for making the seemingly impossible possible. And yes, now we love Derek. We literally want to name our children after Derek. Derek = Hero.
