If you have not heard of the How Ridiculous YouTubers you should definitely check them out. The three intrepid hosts describe themselves as "Australians filming ripper vids for you to watch for free here on YouTube" and they bring viewers some of the most out there entertaining clips imaginable.

This latest session features a bowling ball, a trampoline, and a 165m dam. Yup, you read that right, these crazy yet lovely YouTubers decided to see what would happen if you threw a bowling ball onto a trampoline off of a dam. Admit it you have always kind of wondered yourself or at least you would if the scenario was posed to you.

Their idea actually came after a first video where they threw a bowling ball on a trampoline off of a 45m height. Needless to say that clip went viral!

"After you guys smashed our 200K likes challenge on our Bowling Ball Vs Trampoline 45m video, we take our experiment to new heights at Luzzone Dam, Ticino, Switzerland. A huge thank you to Ticino Tourism for helping to make this happen! We had an epic time visiting this incredible part of the world and filmed heaps of new videos that are coming soon. Do yourself a favor and go experience Ticino for yourself, it's amazing!" said the How Ridiculous team's video description.
