    Johnny Manziel's throw with Dude Perfect is way longer:

    I vote we deny Kevin's attempt. Someone get out there and beat Johnny!

    the fact that when this video is being played, the football starts off really slow, and then happens to go much quicker when its back and viewed on the camera. also, all viewers watching this video does not see the football the whole time after it left your hands; the football is not visible for a certain period of time for the camera.

      no, im not saying that i hate your record, im saying that i wish there were multiple video camera's recording what your attempting. and also that if that were the case, you would be able to play back in real-time what you did without slowing/speeding any part of the video. but because there are parts of your video that are slowed down, thats whats called a mis-cue.

      And following Ryan's words, I'm not hating, either. Just think you should provide a video that clearly demonstrates a: the entire throw, and b: clear evidence that you were 120 feet away. Provide foolproof evidence and we will all bow to you.

    Not to take anything away from your attempt, but I like thinking about the other X takes where you turn to the camera and say "deal with it!" and it didn't go in. :)

    Kevin, amazing work! Do you have video evidence that shows you were actually 120 feet away? Could you provide it?
