This ridiculous stunt features a bowling ball, a trampoline, and 150 feet of gravity
Usually, the How Ridiculous gang creates viral videos for YouTube because of its ludicrous basketball trick shots. In their latest video, however, the Australians show what happens when they drop a bowling ball onto a trampoline from 45 meters (147 feet) up in the air.
Will the bowling ball bounce off the trampoline like a polyurethane geyser rising from the soil? Or will the heavy ball tear through the trampoline and land with a thunk on the ground? There’s only one way to find out.
Turns out the video was both educational and fun, especially when golf balls were added to the mix. And, as was the point, it was completely ridiculous.
