The basketball-lobbing viral video stars of Dude Perfect have taken 11 new records with their exceedingly high-difficulty trick shots, according to Guinness World Records, even taking one from a Harlem Globetrotter.

Among the records they smashed were "Farthest basketball shot made while sitting on the court" (55 feet, 1 inch), "Farthest trampette basketball shot performing a forward flip" (72 feet) and "Greatest height from which a basketball is shot" (533 feet), Guinness World Records said on its website. Big Easy Lofton of The Harlem Globetrotters used to hold the record for "Farthest blindfolded basketball hook shot," but Garrett Hilbert's 55-foot, no-look basket pipped his mark.

The group from Frisco, Texas, smashed the records March 30 and 31st, with an official adjudicator on hand to verify, the organization announced Tuesday. The Greatest Height record was broken on April 28, from atop the 36-story Cotter Ranch Tower in Oklahoma City.

Naturally, the records were filmed. The "World Record Edition" of Dude Perfect was featured Monday on their YouTube channel, which has nearly 10 million subscribers to its name.
