The video was uploaded by an account named jake100 on Instagram. In the short video, the scene opens with a man performing tricks on his bicycle. The setting looked similar to that of a basement parking with visible stairs at the other end. A man wearing a black and white hoodie with grey track pants could be spotted on the cycle. He also had a pair of black sneakers and a black helmet to prevent any injuries in case of a mishap. 

As the seconds rolled, the gentleman attempted a wheelie on his bicycle, following which, the front wheel came off! With the detached wheel now on the stairs, the man, looking unfazed, went on to amaze his fans by cycling one wheel while the front part remained uplifted from the ground. However, as the detached wheel came down from the stairs, the man grabbed them while still riding his cycle. This is where things started to fall apart for the man.

From the moment he had the wheel in his hand, he made several attempts to fit the wheel in the front part of his bicycle. Unable to do so, he made a last-ditch effort to finish off his stunt by putting the wheel on a raised platform and trying to lift his cycle up. Suddenly, the man lost his balance and fell with a loud thud on the ground as the video came to an end.
