Dude Perfect, a five-person comedy and sports YouTube channel, revealed its plans for a new headquarters in a video posted on Twitter on Tuesday, September 27. The huge headquarters seen in the 38-second video appears to be from the future.
The headquarters would include a 330-foot trick-shot tower, Crazy Mini Golf, Trick Shot Town, the Dude Perfect Museum, two acres of outdoor space, a retail shop, and cafes.
Who is Dude Perfect, exactly?
Former Texas A&M University roommates include Coby and Cory Cotton, Cody Jones, Garrett Hilbert, and Tyler Toney. On April 9, 2009, the three released their debut film, which showcased them practicing trick shots at Toney’s ranch.
Within a week of its publication, the YouTube video had 200,000 views. Sky Ranch, a Christian summer camp, was the location for their second video. It immediately gained 18 million views, and for every 100,000 views, the group sponsored a kid through Compassion International.
After their first two videos went popular, ESPN approached the group. SportsNation, Around the Horn, Pardon the Interruption, and First Take all aired video clips.
They are well-known for their stunts, trick shots, stereotypes, and Stereotypes series, which have received over 10 million YouTube views. Their success has allowed them to work with well-known athletes like Tyreke Evans, Ryan Tannehill, Jason Belmonte, Tim McGraw, James Buescher, and James Hinchcliffe.
Overland Partners, a Frisco, Texas-based architectural firm, has been chosen to realize the company’s vision. According to the Dallas Morning News, the Group has not chosen a location for the facility, but because their current headquarters are in Texas, they want to locate their future headquarters in Texas as well.
The group’s alma mater, Texas A&M University, also tweeted about the idea, estimating that the new headquarters would cost $100 million.
The net worth of Dude Perfect is intrinsically related to their YouTube channel
The sports and comedy entertainment company are worth $50 million. They have around 57 million subscribers on YouTube and 11.6 million Instagram followers. The group’s YouTube channel has received approximately 15 billion views since publishing its first trick-shot video in 2009.
The group earns between $20 million and $25 million each year via its YouTube channel and sponsorship agreements. They’ve agreed to a multi-year deal with Amazon and Thursday Night Football to host their broadcast short.
The five Dude Perfect members who have broken several Guinness World Records are Tyler Toney, Cody Jones, Garrett Hilbert, and twins Coby and Cory Cotton. Their CMT network television show, The Dude Perfect Show, premiered in 2016.
Dude Perfect has also starred in several Face-Off videos on the Whistle Sports Network YouTube channel. They also built a sketch comedy program over time. The trio’s mobile games include That’s Lit, Endless Ducker, and Dude Perfect Parts One and Two.
The new headquarters would be a significant boost to an already impressive resume. The Sports Business Journal also spoke with the company about the locations of its future headquarters. Because the entire group is froitsas, Coby stated that they “would love for it to remain local.”
“That being said, we are reviewing all options and have received a lot of interest from a variety of sources.”
According to Overland Partners’ Bryan Trubey, if the group decides not to stay in Texas, Los Angeles and Atlanta are among the prospective destinations. They expect that once construction begins, the project will take around two years to complete.
Cotton also stated:
“Our objective has always been to build a facility where families can have absolute enjoyment in a truly unique way,” the company’s founder adds.
