He was determined to prove his friends wrong. A man in Taos, Missouri was told by his buddies that he would not be able to do a backflip off of a trampoline. He set out to prove he could. What he didn't know as video proved is that the trampoline had already decided it was not going to happen.

Based on the video description, this fun video moment was captured in Taos, Missouri on December 9, 2023. Here's the simple statement shared by the trampoline guy:

"Friends doubted my backflip abilities so I had to prove them wrong."

There's just one problem with his go-getter attitude. It required the trampoline to cooperate.

I have to admit that I was not aware of Taos, Missouri before this trampoline backflip fail. It's a small area that is just south of the Jefferson City area which is great news because there are lots of hospitals and physical therapy places near that part of Missouri to heal trampoline injuries. Not sure if they treat bruised egos though.
