Mercedes-Benz : The Catch

Guinness World Record: David Coulthard Caught Golf Ball At 178MPH Huffington Post

The Fun Stuff

One day we received a call from the good people at creative agency Weapon7, who had the bonkers idea to catch a golf ball in a moving car.

We did quite a bit of maths, some more maths and then some really hard maths and managed to get to the point where we thought it was possible. Then we went out on a beautiful sunny day and attempted something that had never been done before. Did we do it? Of course we did it!

The Serious Bit

We caught the ball, set a world record and got a bit sunburned. The film gained over 2.8 million views, and huge press pickup internationally, as well as lodging Mr Coulthard, us, Weapon 7 and Mercedes-Benz in the Guinness Book of Records.
