The self-catch in the car I didn't think was going to be possible...

We weren't sure either. That's probably the trick Simon was most excited about completing.

I've heard he's ridiculous at getting these things to work...what was the longest one for him to get? How often does he hit those 150'ish throw ins? Or how far are a lot of those shorter ones?

Haha, the most frustrating one of the whole shoot was one that made the preview cut - "The Desert Skipper"

Simon also hated it because it was too simple, and the fact that we were shooting it on a dry lake bed where depth perception can be tough...it took like 3 hours.

I think the signature ace took the shortest amount of time, either 2 or 3 throws. Next was probably the Santa Monica pier. Simon loves an audience.

We even tried a longer pier ace (and he was going to jokingly call out Seppo), but the wind was weird off the ocean and the beach was starting to get busy so we quickly abandoned out of safety concerns.


Oh...there's one more that we didn't complete after hours of trying, but I can't tell you about it yet because Simon is determined to make it work in the future. By the way that's not me officially confirming more of these, but I would be completely shocked if there isn't a Vol. 2 at some point down the road.

I'm not going to lie, a couple of the first few were sorta same old same old. BUT, once you went to the car...those were pretty sick. That last part made the whole thing great.

Awesome work by all of you guys.
