VIDEO: Back flip fail during graduation ceremony

Posted: Updated:

A college graduate's excitement over getting his diploma brought the festivities to a screeching halt.

Check out the video from the ceremony at Davenport University in Grand Rapids, Michigan on Sunday.

The commencement announcer is rolling off the names of students - and watch as Robert Blank, gets his diploma, and then does a back flip.

He doesn’t even come close to pulling it off.

The loud thud caught university officials off guard.

The commencement announcer stopped the ceremony for a minute so he could walk it off.

Blank says the backflip was a spur-of-the-moment decision, not something planned.
