Always one to sniff a trend early, Purdue puts out trick-shot video

Ignore the first few seconds of n00b-like camera holding (seriously, people, stop filming video with your phone held vertically) and enjoy Purdue's effort toward the Internet's infinite inventory of trick-shot videos.

Overall, it's a fairly boilerplate display from Boilers D.J. Byrd and Dru Anthrop, (former player Ryne Smith is also in on the action), but instead of the one-shot extravaganza, we get some consistency and new-found ground here in that the fellas hit multiple tough shots in a row. I like that style. At this point, all we're asking for is some innovation with these videos, which went out of style some time in early 2010, but will of course continue to be made because wasting time on dumb basketball shots is something basketball players must do.

Also, AC/DC as the theme music, which is classic summer go-to.
