London, Sep 24 (ANI): Six young Americans, who call themselves 'Dude Perfect', claim to have videotaped themselves sinking the world's longest basketball shot.

The Texas A and M students posted the video on YouTube, and it apparently shows them throwing a basketball from the top tier of a football stadium, and straight into the basket on the far side of the field.

The two videos, one from the thrower's perspective and one from beneath the basket, seem to back up their claims.

So far 3,300,000 people have viewed the videos, including their Dude Perfect: Summer Camp edition, and video experts say that they are unable to tell where edits have been made.

The six men, who were previously high school basketball players, now roommates at Texas A and M, say they will sponsor one child through the charity Compassion International for every 100,000 views of their video.

"We are already set to sponsor a few and, for example, if our video hits one million views this semester, the six of us will be sponsoring 10 kids," the Telegraph quoted them as saying.

"We're really excited about this, and we hope you will help us spread the word so we can sponsor as many kids as possible!" they added.

The six have remained elusive, refusing to give interviews despite increasing media coverage.

US breakfast television mainstay Good Morning America devoted an entire segment to asking whether or not their basketball stunts were faked. (ANI)
