They have been an overnight sensation on YouTube, their video has over 144,000 hits, and the guys behind a recent internet sensation are from College Station.

Meet the Dude Perfect Guys. They're a group of college buddies that just happened to have some free time over two days. So, they decided to have a little fun with a basketball, a goal, and camera. Plus, they made a little bet.

"We were in the backyard and we bet on lunch to see who could make a shot and win lunch for that day. We started out making ridiculous shots and whoever made it first got the lunch for the day. Then we just got the camera out and decided to get some of them on film, " said Aggie sophomore Tyler Toney.

So News 3 went to the backyard where the video was shot, and we soon found out their shots aren't perfect, but they do hit them eventually.

They even let me get in on the Dude Perfect action. I did have a little help.

So what's next for the group of basketball pioneers?

"We made a list and we're thinking of making a ranch edition. Tyler's family has a ranch near Waco, so we're making plans for that one. We'll keep you posted, " said Aggie Junior Coby Cotton.

Something we will all be looking forward too.
