Students at Olathe Northwest High School attempted to prank coach, Joel Branstrom. The plan was to have Mr. Branstrom shoot a half-court shot blindfolded for the chance to win 4 NCAA Final Four tickets. They were going to fake the cheering after he missed and give him restaurant meal card for the prank prize.

However, to everyone’s surprise, he aced it and made the shot first try.

Where this gets a bit strange:

The video went viral and news outlets started picking it up fast. FOX4 went back to do a follow-up story with reporter Rob Low. He tried one of his own shots, (backwards), with zero expectation of making it in, as a fun addon for the clip.

However, to everyone’s surprise, he aced it and made the shot first try.

Also, while Low interviewed Branstrom for the follow-up piece, he had the former KU player shoot the half-court shot again without a blindfold to show how difficult it was.

“Of course, he made the shot, ” Low said.
