Joost Luiten makes driving a golf ball over a famous Dutch museum look pretty cool

David Letterman may be off the air, but Stupid Human Tricks are alive and well.

Joost Luiten, a Dutchman on the European Tour, decided to try and hit a golf ball over the Rijksmuseum, an art and history museum in Amsterdam. Why? Because why the hell not?

My friends and I used to have a similar bet regarding an attempt to sky the Roebling Bridge in Cincinnati, Ohio. Standing in at 230 feet, I always thought it was impossible.

But now Luiten, the No. 56 ranked player in the world, has rejuvenated this dormant dream by clearing the 95 meters (311 feet) of the Rijksmuseum's towers. Oh, to put a cherry on top, Luiten manages to hit a green he cannot see.

Next time I'm in the Queen City, I'm going to clear that bridge!*

*No way I'm clearing that bridge.
