Student tries back flip at graduation, fails

Are you familiar with the adage "Practice makes perfect?"

I have to ask, because one Davenport University graduate certainly isn't.

During the school's commencement ceremony, the student felt it would be a great idea to try a back flip on stage. After all, he just graduated college. Why not?

He found out. Painfully.

I won't describe exactly what happens because that ruins the fun. I'll only say back flips are supposed to end on one's feet. Not face.

Editor's note: The fail happens about the 3:00:15 mark of the video.
