Australian trick-shot team "How Ridiculous" is no stranger to breaking world records. In 2011, the squad broke the record for highest-altitude basketball shot with a 219-foot toss off the top of a light tower. In 2013, the team set a new record with a 299-foot shot in the Netherlands.

Two records apparently weren't enough, as they most recently bested their previous effort with a 459-foot shot off the top of the Gordon Dam in Tasmania.

It's incredible how much the ball curved just before swishing through the net. That has to be worth more than three points.
