Have you ever watched a football majestically sail through the uprights and thought, ‘What would it be like to do a backflip off of that?’ If you said no, that’s good, because you’re not a complete idiot.
The same can’t be said for the rocket scientist in the below video, who just could not resist the urge. Watch everything that can possibly go wrong by jumping off a goal post happen in about 3 seconds. From nailing his head on the rotation, to missing the mat put in place to catch him, this is complete gold.
Amazingly, there is actually a video of another Rhodes Scholar attempting a goalpost backflip that ended up worse.
It’s unclear what the plan is here, but it looks like this guy is trying to backflip onto a board to catapult his friend through the uprights. Shockingly, this didn’t work quite like they drew it up.
Have a beer clowns, this one’s on Charles Darwin.
