We Spent 6 Days Attempting a 200m Basketball Shot in Lesotho, Africa


A once in a lifetime experience!

Shot at Maletsunyane Falls in Lesotho, this video only came about because we had heaps of help. Firstly thanks to Duane Orriss (DuaneOrriss.com) and Ryan Lucas (Goyastudio.com.au) for coming along as videographers, you guys are both legends! Secondly thanks to Semonkong Lodge for housing and feeding us each day, we had a great experience and definitely recommend everyone stays there when visiting Lesotho. Thirdly thanks to all the local crew who helped find and walk up basketballs, operate the pulley and sort out our harnesses, we really couldn’t have pulled this off without you guys. And finally, thanks to Spalding for providing the basketball gear and Kathmandu for all the epic outdoor gear!

This is genuinely our favourite video we’ve ever made and we hope you enjoy watching it as much as we did! We’ve laughed so much at so many moments even though we’ve seen it a heap of times. We always wanted to make an extended version of our short 2 min world record video (that we released in January) but it’s taken us a while to finally get there. It’s certainly been worth the wait. If you like the video make sure you give it a thumbs up and if you haven’t subscribed hopefully this video gives you enough reason to hit that button! Cheers and thanks again for tuning in – Brett, Scott & Derek

We are passionate about seeing children released from poverty and we would love you to consider sponsoring a child with Compassion. We visited our sponsor children in the Philippines and were blown away by the difference that child sponsorship can make. To find out more about sponsoring a child right now, check out:

What’s the 44 Club you may ask? Well it all started in the outro of this video where we wondered if anyone was still watching the video at that point, and to comment 44 (Scott’s fave number) if they were. Brett then said 44 Club get on board and the rest is history. The 44Club is the official How Ridiculous fan club made up of people who love our videos and watch them right to the very end. We’ve even got 44 Club merch now! So yeh, that’s the story. Pretty random but good fun at the same time.
