Liam Payne showed fans he had the moves while performing onstage at the MTV EMAs in London Sunday, but that was a far cry from what took place backstage.

As the Daily Mirror reports, the One Direction singer was showing off backstage at London’s SSE Arena, demonstrating a skateboard trick for British hip-hop artist Stormzy that wound up with Payne feeling some actual pain when things went south and he took a tumble.

In the video below, Payne is filming himself as he and Stormzy ride skateboards backstage, telling fans: “Let’s see how long we can stay on these things.”

Not long, apparently. Shortly after they start rolling, Stormzy can be heard saying, “Oh my days,” with the camera then panning down to the floor, where Liam is laying after taking a spill off his board.

What did fans have to say about his skateboard mishap on social media? Take a look at this array of Twitter comments:
