Dude Perfect is an American sports and entertainment group which is based on YouTube. It is actually a YouTube trick shot team that was created by 5 guys. Their names are Cory and Coby Cotton (twins), Cody Jones, Garrett Hilbert and Tyler Toney. All these guys attended Texas A&M University and some of them were even friends from high school. They all were basketball players.

We can also say that there is the sixth member of the group. It is the mascot Panda and its identity is still unknown. Ten years ago nobody could imagine that five friends from college and the Panda will take the hearts of millions of people.

This sports entertainment group is known for extreme sports methods. It includes stunt-based trick shots which rely on American football. Dude perfect group is also known for many charitable actions which are done in collaboration with Make-A-Wish foundation.

Dude Perfect group has broken many Guinness World Records and they have more than 17 million subscribers on their channel. Dude Perfect channel is a sports and entertainment channel that is specialized in comedy and trick shots. Dude Perfect has the most subscribers of all sports channels on YouTube.

Dude Perfect is on the top of media attention and television deals, but it is also interesting that all these guys still have the time for their private lives. Three of them are married and two of them even have children.

Early Years and Career Development

The group Dude Perfect originally consisted of Tyler Toney, who was the main person of the group, Cory and Coby Cotton and Garrett Hilbert. Cody Jones joined the last. These guys were betting on sandwiches via basketball shots in the backyard and they recorded all that with camera. That’s how they created their first video called “Backyard Edition”. The group posted this video of trick shots on YouTube. The video was uploaded on April 8, 2009 and in only one week this video had more than 100 000 views. Soon after posting their first video on YouTube, the members of the group Dude Perfect were called for an interview by Good Morning America.

Now you may be wondering why the group is called Dude Perfect. Well, the camera guy of the group, whose name is Sean, set the camera down on the ledge and when he turned on the camera, Tyler was in the frame and he said “dude, perfect”. That’s why the group was named like that.

Soon after that there was another trick shot video which has over 18 million views until now. It has been promised that for every 100 000 views Dude Perfect will sponsor one child from Compassion International.

It is also known that Dude Perfect introduced the Panda mascot which became inseparable part of A&M basketball games. This mascot is usually used to taunt the players of the opposing team. It is also known that the Panda mascot won one of the battles called “Go-Kart Battle”. It is interesting that fans still don’t know who is behind the mask. There is a speculation that it is Dorian Marie, a French student which is known to wear panda suit to entertain people in New York. But, it is impossible, because Dude perfect is located in Texas. So, the identity of the Dude Perfect Panda still remains a mystery.

These guys have their own “Stereotypes” series which is based on humor and fun, “Stereotypes” is a popular satirical series about the usual stereotypes of pick-up basketball, fishing, golf, softball, etc.

Also, there is a question if Dude Perfect’s trick shots are real or they are the result of camera. These shots are too amazing to be real. In 2013 Dude Perfect also launched a mobile game for Android and IOS.
