The ArcelorMittal Orbit at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is a large observation tower that makes for one outrageous basketball court.
Granted, there is little room to allow for dribbling or passing, but you can drop one insane shot from distance.
Just don’t think about dunking.
The Daily Mail also posted the video, which you can enjoy below.
It’s a really rather frightening sight when you have to be harnessed to shoot a basketball. But there you have it; Derek Herron and Scott Gaunson are strapped in a ready to make it rain from high atop the London skyline.
As The Telegraph states, the stunt was all “part of a Lucozade Energy 'Find Your Flow' campaign, which challenges people to do something extraordinary.”
Herron relays what it’s been like visiting the wonderfully vibrant nation: “It's been an amazing experience being in the UK and we are absolutely thrilled to have achieved our first ever trick-shot in London.”
