Adam Beatrice made it rain, and the outcome was a new world record. 

There isn't a whole lot of information on this video out there, but we can't help but smile as this young man goes Steve Kerr from an amazing distance 10 times. 


Update: Thursday, July 12th 8:20 p.m. ET

Adam Beatrice got in touch with us and directed our attention to an NBC Columbus report with more information.

The actual event seems to have taken place last year, but it really gained traction when BroBible posted it early Thursday. 

The YouTube description has all the necessary details of a rather exuberant display of jump shooting. 

It all went down at Allen Arena of Lipscomb University, where Beatrice drained 10 shots from half court in less than a minute, actually making the critical, record-breaking shot within 45 seconds. 

For all those fans who dreamed of being called at halftime to shoot a shot for a sum of money, take a note from our rapid-firing friend here. He could really make a living off gift certificates to Red Lobster or whatever else they give away at random basketball halftime shows. 

The real workhorse in this video is Beatrice's accomplice, who does wind sprints as he tries to get all the random basketballs being strewn about. 

If Beatrice set the record, that man needs an accommodation. I am winded, and all I did was sit back and welcome amazement sweeping over me.
