    Blindfolded Half Court Prank

    This is pretty funny. Most people are familiar with the College Humor prank of the blindfolded half court shot. I think there was a thread on Fanatic about it, but if you missed it, here's the video:
    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bI7AUgp5fPI"]YouTube - Prank Wars 7 - The Half Court Shot[/ame]

    A Kansas high school tried to recreate the prank with the coach of the women's team, but it doesn't go as planned as the guy actually makes the shot. The coach thinks it's a prank so he's just going along with it, not knowing that he seriously made it.

    And then when the local news went to report on the story, their field reporter just tosses a basketball over his head from half court, and that goes in as well.

    I love those guys. Their tv show, Pranked, is also pretty good.

    Re: Blindfolded Half Court Prank

    It's not that hard to make a half court shot blindfolded if you know where the hoop is. They should spun him around in circles just so this wouldn't have happened.

    Yeah, I'd probably be around 65-70%. I'm not that good a shooter though.

    Re: Blindfolded Half Court Prank

    If you go to college humor, you will see that that prank is just one in a series of pranks between those two people, its a prank war. Go look it up they get better/worse as they progress and they are pretty complicated. Some include one at Yankee Stadium and breaking up a relationship and one about getting an acting gig in LA. Seriously go look it up.
