“I want to see this!” someone shouts off camera. “ You recording, right?”
Fortunately, someone was.
Brown lopes across the playground as a police radio crackles and a gaggle of kids watch, probably expecting the tall officer to land in a heap in the playground’s mulch. But Brown gracefully twists in a cartwheel and then rounds into a backflip — a perfect copy of the kid.
He lands softly, kicking up a cloud of mulch.
“Oooh!” a kid yells as the video ends.
The 20-second clip, which Brown posted on his Facebook page on June 30, has been shared more than 3,100 times and viewed nearly 160,000. It also landed Brown on ABC’s “Nightline” on Monday.
“I pulled off some old school me stuff on Elvans Rd today!” Brown wrote on his Facebook page.
