This Student's Graduation Backflip Totally Backfired

Apr 29, 2014

After receiving his diploma from Davenport University Sunday, Robert Jeffrey Blank decided to attempt a backflip. He gave it the old college try (get it?) but things didn't go quite as planned.

The graduate removed his cap, assumed the position and then launched himself into the air. And then: THUD.

Blank quickly got up, brushed himself off and walked off the stage. Hope his dreams soar higher than his backflip.
