Boomerang Trick Shots

This impressive Boomerang Trick Shots video, led by World Champion Boomerang Thrower Logan Broadbent, keeps your eye on the boomerang with solid screen graphics and some surprising targets—giant powder-filled balloons, gongs, light bulbs, lit candles, and more. Reminder: Broadbent is a pro. Don’t try those last two at home.

Frisco, Texas-based sports YouTubers Dude Perfect—Cody Jones, Garrett Hilbert, Tyler Toney, and Coby and Cory Cotton—host the video and go for a few boomerang trick shots of their own. Bonus puppy moment included.
