Dude Perfect’s Washington D.C. trick shot video

The five fellas from the Dude Perfect basketball trick shot collective came to D.C. last month under Google’s auspices, to help “highlight the economic impact of [Google’s] YouTube partner program and the unique ways people are making a living using video,” according to a PR person.

What this meant, for our purposes, was that Dude Perfect would be filming basketball trick shots in the greater D.C. area. I was imagining half-smokes raining down from Ford’s Theater into makeshift half-smoke shaped baskets along 10th street, plus an intricate indie-rock themed Fort Reno ensemble that ended with Ian Mackaye stuffed into a punk-rock hoop emblazoned with the D.C. flag.

Instead, there are trick shots featuring the Tidal Basin, the Washington Monument, the White House, the Capitol Building and a double-decker bus. Plus Ben’s Chili Bowl, which is something. It was definitely enough to get me to watch.
