It's the fail heard around the Internet as video of a graduating student's failed backflip goes viral.

Davenport University held its spring graduation on Sunday in Grand Rapids, Mich.

Robert Jeffrey Blank was a little excited about his big accomplishment. After shaking hands with the university president, he's seen attempting a backflip on stage that went horribly wrong.

Instead of landing to cheers, Blank face-planted with a loud thud.

Blank was somehow not injured and could laugh at the fail as he walked off stage.

Maybe next time just stick with the fist pump.
