Everyone wants to go viral on the internet. One shredded, bearded bro cooked up an extreme stunt to get some clicks and the video is paying off, but not because of him.
The video shows the jacked dude attempting some weird type of handstand with a bunch of barbells stacked on top of each other. Yeah, really cool man. Who cares?
While the shredded hipster is busy doing whatever he’s doing, your eyes can’t help but be drawn to the old man in the background effortlessly sinking free throw after free throw. He doesn’t miss once during the video.
The hipster stuntman was beaming with self-satisfaction after doing his stupid trick, not realizing he was destined to be the supporting actor in this viral video. So perfect.

Sadly, one social media user pointed out that the man shooting the free throws in the background is Dr. Tom Amberry, a Long Beach podiatrist who died on March 18 at the age of 94. Amberry wasn’t just a physician, he also set the Guinness World Record by sinking 2,750 consecutive free throws in 1993.
Amberry was actually offered a contract by the Minneapolis Lakers in 1951, but declined it to pursue his career in medicine. So, he’s basically the real life Moonlight Graham.
The video is of one of his last free throw sessions before his death. He was still money until the end. RIP, doc.
