Bro Attempts Backflip Football Catch Off a Roof, and It Goes Exactly How You’d Expect (Video)

backflip football catch off roof

Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen several obscure NFL prospects get some social media attention for themselves by performing acrobatic catches and putting the videos online.

Such videos are amusing, of course. But the reality is that no NFL team is going to draft a guy just because he caught a football (or two footballs) while doing a backflip. Believe it or not, there just are not many game situations where that skill would come in handy.

The good news is that these backflip football catch attempts have not totally been in vain. There are now a lot of amateur copycats out there trying to make their own backflip football catch videos, each one trying to outdo the next. And they often fail quite spectacularly. Which is fantastic.

Just look at this bro try to perform a backflip football catch off the roof of a house:

Yep, that was ill-advised.

Keep up the good work, internet.
