Everyone who has graduated from university knows the fear of "the walk". That one moment when hundreds, thousands, of eyes are upon you and you have to make it the few feet from the shadows up to the podium, shake hands, and then return to your seat - ALL without tripping up.

Not content with a slight wobble and then a fall, onlookers at US school Mansfield High's ceremony (and nearly 2m of YouTube users) were treated to a majestic 12 seconds of effort to stay upright before the final tumble.

Graduates, take note: comfort wins over style, every time.
