Jacksonville Jaguars mascot Jaxson de Ville is widely known for being one of the craziest mascots in American sports. But while he is renown for some wild and crazy antics, what he did before today’s game has been going viral.
Prior to today’s game against the Arizona Cardinals, de Ville entertained the fans with some acrobatics at TIAA Bank Field. With a bungee cord to assist him, he did a frontward backflip off the top of the stadium, and let the cables guide him onto the field.
Fans quickly weighed in on how amazing de Ville’s stunt was. Most people immediately said that they would never dare try something as crazy as that.
But others took the opportunity to have some fun at the Jaguars’ expense, noting the lack of fans in attendance. Others pointed out that while they won the pregame show, they probably won’t win against the Cardinals.

Still others pointed out that Jaxson de Ville has been doing these bungee jumps for years – decades even. And they’re wondering why fans are so impressed this time around.
so everyone is just learning about Jaxson de Ville bungee jumping even though he's done it for at least a decade? #DUUUVAL

In fairness, Jaxson de Ville has arguably been more watchable than the Jaguars football team for the better part of the last decade. De Ville has certainly fallen on his face considerably less than the team itself.
Is Jaxson de Ville the most exciting mascot in American sports?
