Robert Jeffrey Blank just had his name called at Sunday's commencement ceremony at Davenport University in Grand Rapids, Mich., and is shaking hands with a line of administrators. He's stoked, and he should be! Graduating college is a major accomplishment. What he does next, however, is not.
The new grad faces the crowd, lifts his arms in victory and leaps to execute an awesome backflip. However, he stalls in the air and faceplants on the stage to the collective gasp of the audience.
Blank walks off, seemingly okay. His pride might be slightly bruised, but his status as a soon-to-be viral star is alive and well.
