AUSTRALIA (WISH) — Members of an Australian trick shot team have set a new world record after making a basket from the top of a dam in Tasmania.

The team called “How Ridiculous” stood at the top of Tasmania’s Gordon Dam, which is 126.5 meters tall, and watched as the basketball went into a basketball hoop. They were 415-feet above the basket.

The group told the Daily Mail Australia before the shot they did some experiments to figure out the best way to make it.

The group posted the video to YouTube Sunday, and it’s been viewed hundreds of thousands of times.
