Hoverboards were the hot Christmas gift for 2015. Many people purchased the self-balancing two-wheeled scooters, including Mike Tyson apparently.

The former heavyweight boxing champion of the world posted a video of himself attempting to ride a hoverboard on his social media accounts on Tuesday morning. He can be seen turning circles and then giggling as he heads towards whomever is holding the camera.

Unfortunately, the hoverboard veers into the carpeted area and Tyson goes down with a mighty thud.

The video, which was posted to his Facebook account on Tuesday morning, had been viewed more than 5 million times by 1 p.m. PT.
