Summer is almost here, and for sports fans that means NBA and NHL playoffs, the heart of the MLB season and, inevitably, swimming pool dunk videos.
And now, the pros are taking the baton from the amateurs.
In a new video posted by Turkish Airlines, several Euroleague stars pull off a pool dunk for the ages. The clip, which features Americans Shawn James (played collegiately at Northeastern and Duquesne) and Kyle Hines (UNC-Greensboro) as well as a jetpack, has accumulated more than 100,000 views in less than 24 hours.
Best of all is the fact that this stunt is real. Don't believe us? Check out the behind-the-scenes video:
In an era when so many seemingly-impressive sports commercials are fake, we tip our caps to the players and creative team behind this spot. It wasn't easy to nail this shoot, but the end result is worth the effort.
