AUSTIN, Texas — The YouTube stars of Dude Perfect garner millions of views on their epic trick-shot videos, and their most recent iteration features a landmark familiar to Austinites.

On July 6, Dude Perfect posted its video of a competition between members of the group, seeing who could throw a plane the farthest from the top of the tower at Circuit of the Americas (COTA).

The video racked up more than 6 million views in the first 24 hours it was posted to YouTube. 

Dude Perfect – comprised of a group of college roommates from Texas A&M University – found viral fame in 2009 after the group posted a video of backyard trick shots at the ranch belonging to member Tyler Toney. The video, later renamed "Backyard Edition | Our First Video!" has received more than 37 million views to date.
