‘Glorifying Jesus’: Dude Perfect Announces Plans For New ‘Family’ Entertainment Destination

The five-member comedy and sports team, known to more than 58 million YouTube subscribers as Dude Perfect, has announced its next goal: the construction of a new Dude Perfect headquarters, which will be a “family” entertainment destination.

Variety reports that the dudes have been working with San Antonio, Texas-based Overland Partners on the project for over a year.

The new three-story headquarters building will feature a 330-foot “trick shooting tower”, a Dude Perfect museum, mini-golf, merchandise store, restaurants and 2 acres of outdoor space.

The facility could cost up to $100 million to build, the group said The Dallas Morning News.

At present, there is no timetable for the opening of the new facility. The co-founders and owners of Dude Perfect – Tyler Toney, Garrett Hilbert, Cody Jones and twins Cory and Coby Cotton – are launching the project in several different cities, including Los Angeles and Atlanta, according to Sports Business Journal.

As reported by CBN News, the Frisco, Texas-based group has racked up billions of YouTube views, as well as tens of millions of subscribers, which has brought them a multi-million dollar empire dedicated to the perfect shot.

The five men also revealed a religious lens on their website.

“But Dude Perfect isn’t just about having fun. We want to give back, spread joy, and glorify Jesus Christ,” they say.

Whether it’s making a basket with the Goodyear Blimp, flying with the Blue Angels, or eating dog food like cereal, the five friends are the second highest-paid YouTube stars on the planet, earning around $20 million in 2021.

The former Texas A&M housemates posted their first nifty stunt in 2009, and the rest is history. Now, the group has more than 58 million subscribers and nearly 15 billion views.

They tweeted a video showing an animation of their proposed setup.

“The future of Dude Perfect COMING SOON:

  • 100 meter shooting tower
  • crazy mini golf
  • Trick Shot City
  • Dude Perfect Museum
  • Two hectares of outdoor space
  • Merchandise store, restaurants and more

And that’s just the beginning.”

As CBN News reported, fans of Dude Perfect have found out the hard way that sometimes doing these shots isn’t that easy, and the five guys aren’t always perfect.

But it’s not just trick shots. They also perfected game shows and helicopter battles and they adopted stereotypes in their videos.

The driving force behind these guys might surprise you. “If we lose everything tomorrow,” said Garrett Hilbert of Dude Perfect, “it doesn’t matter.”

“We know the most important thing we have is Jesus,” he said in the official Dude Perfect documentary.

They’re also in the business of giving back, granting dozens of wishes for Make-A-Wish Foundation children under four years old.

“Once you see these kids and what they’re going through,” Dude Perfect’s Tyler Toney said, “it’s a no-brainer.”

“Knowing that you have the ability to bring them some hope is such an easy lift for us,” Toney said.

This included pit stops on their first live cross-country tour of 2019 to visit children with cancer and take a detour to bring the tour bus to Myer, a six-year-old fan with leukemia.

“Lord, we’re just praying for Myer,” one of the Dude Perfect members said in “Dude Perfect: Backstage Pass,” a YouTube movie documenting their live tour. “We are so grateful to have the chance to spend time with him and his family,” he said, before adding, “We love you so much and we thank you, Jesus, for Myer.”

YouTube guys don’t always wear their Christian faith on their sleeve, but if you look closely, you’ll see it’s embedded in almost everything they do.
