Police agencies have warned people that the stunt is dangerous, which Jaylen Norwood, 22, quickly discovered.

Video uploaded to Instagram shows Norwood showing off his best dance moves for the so-called #InMyFeelings Challenge.

However, instead of jumping on the hood of a moving car that enters the video, Norwood was hit head on.

His Instagram post says, "Sooo I was originally suppose to jump on the hood of the car, but I slipped. ... Keke never loved me."

Fortunately, he only suffered a few minor scrapes.

The now viral video resulted in Norwood being interviewed by late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel Monday night.

Norwood told Kimmel that the car, driven by his best friend, wasn't supposed to be traveling that fast. Also, he also slipped on oil in the street, compounding the situation.

Despite the infamous video, the Boynton Beach man said he is proud of the notoriety the video has brought him. 

"I'm the most famous guy in Florida," Norwood told Kimmel.

Boynton Beach police said in a tweet they advised: “Do not try this at home. Or in the middle of the street. Or on a highway. Or riding on top of a car.”
