Video: Graduate Fails Backflip On Stage

Don’t try this at home, kids — or anywhere for that matter. This Davenport University graduate, Robert Jeffery Blank, decided to do a backflip on the graduation stage just after he shook the school’s president’s hand. He said that his family was cheering him on, he’s done backflips before, so why not? Well, guess what, it failed…and of course the video has exploded over the internet. You can watch his fail below. The only time a backflip is acceptable is if you’re doing it into a pool…off of a diving board. If you fail, the worst you’re going to get is a belly flop.
