Few people would have predicted 10 years ago that five pals and a panda would win over millions of hearts and minds, but the lads of Dude Perfect have managed to achieve exactly that.
Even however, not everyone is familiar with the real boys and their pandas despite the fact that they are well-known. Here is all you need to know about Dude Perfect, whether you’re a die-hard fan or are just getting into it.
Cory Cotton Is a Published Author
Cory Cotton, a founding member of Dude Perfect, is a novelist in addition to his internet fame. His first self-help book, Go Big: Make Your Shot Count in the Connected World, was released by Tyndale House in 2011.
In it, Cotton not only describes the journey that Dude Perfect took from a group of college students to online superstars, but he also offers advice and pointers to other people looking to dominate the internet, such as “If you don’t act wisely and quickly to stand out in the crowd, an idea marked with your fingerprint could easily end up with someone else’s name on the package.” Seriously, you don’t want to wish that you had invented the iPod.
They Are a Kind Group of Guys.
Don’t assume Cotton has lost his mind because he’s a young man riding the wave of internet millionaires. He has made it a priority to give back, as has the rest of the gang. Since they all believe they should do more than just provide entertainment, they have joined forces with both Charity:
Water and Compassion International. We have this platform, and as Cotton put it, “We’re always thinking of the best ways to use it.” A great place to start is with charitable endeavors.
Father Cody Jones
They still find time for their personal lives despite the flurry of media attention and broadcast deals. Not only are three of the Dudes married, but Cody Jones revealed to his Twitter followers in January 2016 that he will become a father in June of that same year. Babies are expensive, so it’s a good thing they signed that TV deal with CMT. As a result, Jones must now start setting aside money for his children’s education fund.
It’s the Harlem Globetrotters.
In 2011, the members of Dude Perfect started a friendly competition with the Harlem Globetrotters, the first trickshot masters. For a game of H.O.R.S.E., the two teams got together at the Ranch.
The Dudes were invited to join the squad during their 2015 draught after the Globetrotters were won over by their trademark extra-large fishing pole shot. There is no information on whether the Dudes accepted the offer.
They Have Issues with Guinness.
They don’t really have beef, but at least they have one. Dude Perfect made an attempt to break the record for the longest basketball shot, which they sort of succeeded in doing. They made a 561-foot shot at Dallas’ Reunion Tower in 2014. The Guinness Book of World Records does not, however, include this shot as the longest basket.
They believe that Thunder Law of the Harlem Globetrotters, who sank a 109-foot-9-inch shot at the US Airways Arena in Phoenix, Arizona, in 2013, owns the record. As you undoubtedly already fully understand, 109 feet is significantly shorter than 561 feet. That’s enough to spur a boycott of Guinness.

They Get Interested from Around the World.
The focus of Dude Perfect extends outside the US. The actions of these good ol’ Texans are so fantastic that they have attracted the attention of foreign publications, including the UK’s The Telegraph.
In their article, the British threw doubt on the entire project in addition to questioning the veracity of one of Dude Perfect’s trick shots. The Dude Perfect members are still “elusive,” according to the 2009 report, despite significant media attention. Someone seems to be disappointed over not getting an interview.
