In 2013, a young boy named Titus took the internet by storm. Nicknamed “Trick Shot Titus,” this 2-year-old basketball shooting machine became a YouTube sensation overnight.Titus and his family combined charming home videos with masterfully crafted trick shots that’d make an NBA player jump out of their seat in disbelief…
His skills have even drawn the attention of celebrities like Bradley Cooper and Channing Tatum, making him one of the most envied toddlers in America.
According to his dad, Titus began shooting hoops shortly after learning to walk. His first video, which has racked up an impressive 15 million views, was recorded when he was just 18 months old. The tricks in that first video were so astounding, that his dad said it “makes other trick shot videos look like a bunch of old guys who should have something better to do — like retire, turn up their pacemakers, or join an assisted living facility.”
This video is the third installment in the “Trick Shot Titus” series and is by far the most popular with 20 million views. It shows Titus making all kinds of impossible shots, and even rubbing elbows with a few celebrities. It all leads up to Titus’s most intimidating challenge yet: a free throw on a regulation size basketball hoop at a Wichita State Shockers game. Does he make the shot? Or do his basketball skills vanish under pressure?
