Last year it was the Mall of America, this year Harlem Globetrotter Zeus hit a jaw-dropping trick shot from another Twin Cities landmark.

The trick-shot specialist paid a visit to U.S. Bank Stadium ahead of the Globetrotters mini-tour of Minnesota that culminates with two performances at Target Center on Saturday.

After hitting a shot from the zip-wire at Nickelodeon World last year, this time the Vikings opened the gigantic stadium's doors so Zeus could make a long-range basket from the concourse with downtown Minneapolis in the background.

And after making the first he made a second, facing the wrong direction throwing the ball over his head.

No word on how many takes it took to get the shot, but it's the Harlem Globetrotters, so just presume it was his first try and suspend any disbelief to the contrary.

The Globetrotters will play at Halenbeck Hall in St. Cloud Wednesday night, before heading to the AMSOIL Arena in Duluth on Thursday and the Mayo Civic Center in Rochester on Friday. All games are at 7 p.m.

They will play twice at Target Center on Saturday, at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. Ticket information can be found here.
