Channeling his inner-Carl Edwards, a Davenport University student decided to celebrate after receiving his degree by performing a back-flip on stage — a decision he quickly regretted.
Edwards is a NASCAR driver know for celebrating a win at the track by doing a back-flip off his car.
Making a rude entry into the real world, Robert Blank‘s journey began with a face plant in front of hundreds of people.
After walking across the stage and shaking hands with university administrators, Robert Jeffrey Blank removed his cap, planted his feet in place and attempted a backflip.
It didn’t go well.
Blank failed to rotate quick enough, and appeared to land face first on the stage, drawing a gasp from the audience. He didn’t appear to suffer any serious injuries, though, as he can be seen quickly getting up and walking off stage.
