EPCC student goes viral for graduation ceremony flip


EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – One EPCC student is going viral for his “flipping” crazy moves at his graduation ceremony on Friday.

While walking across the Don Haskins Center stage, Koutangni Dimitri Gbedji-Sopka decided to take things to new heights and performed a backflip.

Unfortunately, Gbedji-Sopka didn’t quite stick the landing and instead fell on his shoulder, leaving the entire audience aghast.

He was thankfully able to get right back up with a big smile before finally receiving his diploma.

A Twitter video of the graduation flip has received more than four million views in just three days.

Congratulations to Gbedji-Sopka and all other graduates!
