He Dropped A Basketball From 126.5 Meters. Look What Happened With A Mere Backspin!

They were standing on top of the Gordon Dam in Tasmania, Australia with one purpose – to break the world record for the longest basketball shot. This dam is 126.5 meters (or 315 feet) high, and a little spoiler alert – they succeeded. Little did they expect the next bizarre thing to happen: as one of them dropped the ball (didn’t even throw it!) below with a slight backspin, it literally took off.
