Robert Jeffrey Blank thought he was going to make history by doing a backflip at his graduation...and he will be talked about for awhile, just not in the way he was probably hoping.
During his graduation from Davenport University, Robert decided to showboat and do a backflip on stage after he accepted his diploma and shook the University President's hand.
The handshake went totally fine. Then, when it came time for the backflip, Robert ate it...hard. In the video above, you can hear the thud of him accidentally body-slamming the stage.
Unfortunately, it's just off-camera so we don't get to see exactly how it...or he...went down. From the sounds of it, though, it was a pretty epic WWE-style slam.
The worst part is that he totally ruined his classmate Keaton Taylor Briggs' big moment. Keaton played it pretty cool, but if we were him, we would have been super pissed. Then again, he did inadvertently become a part of viral video history at Robert's expense, so we'll call it even.
