Commencement Backflip

The most exciting part of the Davenport University commencement festivities in Grand Rapids, Michigan, happened about three hours into the ceremony. Robert Jeffrey Blank received his diploma, of which he is understandably proud, but then he tried to make his graduation memorable by doing a backflip for the camera. The “thud” you hear, and the expressions of those on stage, lets us know that it didn’t turn out as expected. But Blank is now a viral star, and isn’t that what you went to college for four years for, anyway? (via Daily Picks and Flicks)
