American trick shot crew 'Dude Perfect' crew have been outdone by a group of Aussies, who set the record for the world's highest basketball shot at 180 metres.

The Perth-based group who go by 'How Ridiculous' held the world record prior to 'Dude Perfect', and travelled to Mauvoisin Dam in Switzerland to reclaim their title, nailing a 593-foot (180 metre) shot.

What makes it even crazier is the crew claim they made the shot on just their third attempt!
