Next time you ask someone to take a video of your sweet hoverboard tricks, just know that your fall – which is inevitable – will be captured as well.

“We’ve seen a lot of falls over the holidays,” Patty Davis, a spokesperson for the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, told PEOPLE. “We’ve seen at least 39 emergency room treated injuries associated with hoverboards – concussions, fractures, contusions, abrasions.”

Despite these injury risks, several celebrities are deciding to learn the perils of hoverboarding (and basic physics) the hard way.

1. Mike Tyson
The former heavyweight champion shared a video on Instagram of his perilous journey atop a hoverboard, which goes well until the inevitable happens. (Why do people always think they’ll to be the one person in the history of ever who doesn’t fall?) Sure enough, Tyson slips and lands on his back, captioning his Insta with #MikeTysonBreaksBack.

2. Brandi Glanville
“Swollen paw 6 stitches I’m officially done with iWalk slash hover board :(” the former Real Housewives star tweeted on Saturday, adding a broken heart emoji for extra emotional affect.

A day later, she posted a close-up shot of the stitches. “Antibiotics equals no alcohol, allergy to pain meds equals pain, 6 stitches & a hairline fracture #priceless,” she wrote.

3. Kendall Jenner
The model was graceful enough to not completely wipe out, but she definitely got “too cocky,” causing her to fall while attempting to execute a high-speed turn. (Conclusion: Confidence/cockiness leads to bad things.)

4. Wiz Khalifa
He didn’t fall, but he did get arrested.

5. These guys
And that’s why you never try to do tricks.

In conclusion: Walking is a perfectly fine mode of transportation.
