Two Harlem Globetrotter's players, Orlando 'El Gato' Melendez and Jonathan 'Hawk' Thomas, successfully made shots from a roof of the Wells Fargo Center into a basketball hoop in the arena's parking lot in a video posted to YouTube on Wednesday, March 9, 2016.

A Harlem Globetrotters player holds the world record for making the longest basket. Another player swished a basketball from high atop a ride at Morey's Pier in Wildwood, New Jersey.

Now they can add making two, long-range shots from a roof of Wells Fargo Center in South Philly to their highlight reel.

A video posted Wednesday to YouTube shows Globetrotters Stars Orlando "El Gato" Melendez and Jonathan "Hawk" Thomas perched on the roof more than 100 feet from a basketball net set up in the arena's parking lot. Watch it below: 

The same players laughed it up with Mayor Jim Kenney last week, teaching him how to perform the butt pass.

The rooftop stunt was performed to promote the team's game at Wells Fargo Center at 12:30 p.m. Saturday. For tickets and more information, go to
