I’ve always kind of considered Tim McGraw as the perfect dude. But now, Dude Perfect has made that even more obvious.
Because even though Dude Perfect — a group of five guys who have become weirdly famous for doing cool basketball trick shots — are pretty good with the round ball, McGraw comes in at the end of this video and owns it.
Until McGraw came on board with these guys, had they ever made a nothing-but-net shot by using an electric guitar as a bat to hit the basketball in? I doubt it. But McGraw does it — and does it perfectly. Maybe they needed a few takes to get the guitar shot just right. But, still, it’s impressive.
In between the shots the members of Dude Perfect keep talking. They talk a little with McGraw about random topics like their favorite part of their favorite song (“I can kill a deer or buffalo/With just my arrow and my hickory bow/From a hundred yards, don’t you know/I do it all the time” from “Indian Outlaw”), the birthday gift they gave him (the Perfect Bacon Bowl kitchen tool and a $6.99 Starbucks gift card), and then they compare biceps and put on fake mustache stickers and pretend to be Keith Urban.
The whole five-minute video is a nice reminder of what a good sport McGraw is.
McGraw’s “Highway Don’t Care” video, featuring Taylor Swift and Keith Urban, is nominated in two categories at the 2014 CMT Music Awards — video of the year and collaborative video of the year. The awards show airs live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday (June 4) at 8 p.m. ET on CMT.
