It's a ghost ball?


True story: I went mini-golfing with some friends back in January, and The Greatest Putt-Putt Shot of All Time happened on that fateful night. Brian (center) shot the video with his iPhone and Kyle (left) uploaded it to YouTube. Before long, it got a bunch of views and ended up on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (1:18) where ?uestlove used it in Remix the Clips (2:40), and The Ellen Degeneres Show (2:00), and some other webshows.

This photo is our attempt at recreating the goast bawl for today's meme-theme. Much to our chagrin, the fountains at this golf course have not been operational for a week or so. It turns out this sort of magic defies re-creation.

I guess the course thought that making the magic once was all it could take.

I can't believe you were the originator of a meme. I mean, I'm not all up on the viral videos, but Mackle had clearly seen that before.

Crazy.
