I came across this video today, and I decided to share it with you as it is funny, although the star of the video could have gotten extremely hurt.

This kid is no Jalyessa Walker, who performed a record of 49 backflips across a football field in November. He attempts a backflip, goes through with it, but somehow manages to land on his face.

I don't know how it happens, but something goes terribly wrong mid-air. According to the uploader, the video was shot near an unidentified historical monument.

It seems like a group of teenagers was fooling around and one tried to show off some moves, possibly to impress a girl appearing in the video.

As always, the most hilarious part of the footage is when his friends refer to him with a sympathetic “dude,” and ask him if he's OK, when he obviously isn't.
