Backflip Fail At Davenport Graduation [VIDEO]

By: Evan Jankens

Graduation day is traditionally one of the happiest moments of a young person’s life. One gentleman may have different thoughts about his graduation, though.

During Davenport’s graduation, one poor guy was left wishing he had learned not to try to show off.

This dude decided to try a backflip after he received his diploma. The only problem was he didn’t land the flip at all.

My favorite part of this video are the people handing out the diplomas. The look on their faces as this guy landed was priceless. They almost don’t miss a beat — one guy continues to congratulate a student as the other is laying on the ground after his failed flip.

I’m curious: Why did no one help this dude? I’m even more shocked this guy thought he could pull the flip off.
