Dude Perfect, the five-member comedy and sports YouTube creators, revealed his intentions for its new headquarters via a video uploaded to Twitter on Tuesday, September 27. . A 30-foot trick-shot tower, Crazy Mini Golf, Trick Shot Town, the Dude Perfect Museum, two acres of outdoor space, a retail store and dining options would be part of the headquarters.
Overland Partners, an architectural firm based in Frisco, Texas, has been selected to update the firm’s vision. According to the Dallas Morning News, the group has not chosen a location for the base, but since their existing headquarters is in Texas, they want to locate their future headquarters in Texas. Texas A&M University, the group’s alma mater, also tweeted about the project, stating that the new headquarters would cost $100 million.
About 13 years ago, five Aggies uploaded a video of their backyard basketball trickshots to @YouTube.

The value of the sports and strip entertainment company is $50 million. They have nearly 57 million YouTube subscribers and 11.6 million Instagram followers. Since posting their debut trickshot video in 2009, the group’s YouTube account has racked up approximately 15 billion views. According to Finty.com, the group generates between $20 million and $25 million annually through its YouTube channel and sponsorship deals. They have signed a multi-year agreement with Amazon and Thursday Night Football to host their own short broadcast.
Tyler Toney, Cody Jones, Garrett Hilbert and twins Coby and Cory Cotton are the five Dude Perfect members who have broken multiple Guinness World Records. The Dude Perfect Show, their CMT network television show, debuted in 2016. Additionally, Dude Perfect has appeared in a number of Face-Off videos on the Whistle Sports Network YouTube channel. Over time, they also created a sketch comedy program. That’s Lit, Endless Ducker and Dude Perfect Parts One and Two are among the mobile games created by the trio.
The new headquarters would be an important addition to their already remarkable resume. The organization also spoke to the Sports Business Journal about the locations of their future offices. Since the entire group is from Texas, Coby commented that they “would love it if it was local.” He continued,
“Having said that, we are evaluating all the alternatives and have had a lot of interest from several places.”
According to Bryan Trubey of Overland Partners, if the group chooses not to stay in Texas, Los Angeles and Atlanta are among the possible locations. They expect that once the building has started, the project will take about two years to complete.
Cotton also said:
“Our ambition has always been to create a venue where families can have absolute fun in a truly unique way,” says the company founder.
Who exactly is Dude Perfect?
Coby and Cory Cotton, Cody Jones, Garrett Hilbert and Tyler Toney are all former roommates at Texas A&M University. The trio released their debut film on April 9, 2009, in which they practiced trick shots at Toney’s ranch. The YouTube video was viewed 200,000 times within a week of its release. Their second video was shot at Sky Ranch, a Christian vacation camp. It immediately got 18 million views and for every 100,000 views, the organization sponsored a child through Compassion International.
ESPN contacted the group after their first two films went viral. SportsNation, Around the Horn, Pardon the Interruption, and First Take are all played clips from their videos. They are known for their stunts, trick shots, stereotypes and Stereotypes series, which have been viewed over 10 million times on YouTube. Their success has allowed them to work with a number of well-known athletes, including Tyreke Evans, Ryan Tannehill, Jason Belmonte, Tim McGraw, James Buescher and James Hinchcliffe.
