Super Bowl viewers have taken to social media to question whether an attendee made it out of the halftime show crowd in one piece.

Nevada’s Allegiant Stadium played host to the 58th National Football League’s (NFL) annual championship game on Sunday, 11 February.

Despite a strong start from the San Francisco 49ers, the Kansas City Chiefs snatched a 25-22 win in overtime and managed to defend their Super Bowl title.

This weekend’s victory marks the fourth time the Chiefs have hoisted the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Amazingly, it's also their third title win in just five seasons.

While many American football fans tuned in to see the likes of Travis Kelce and Christian McCaffrey on the field, others flipped over just for the annual Super Bowl halftime show.

This year, R&B legend Usher ploughed through his extensive back catalogue of hits and was joined on stage by special guests will.i.am, Alicia Keys, Ludacris and Lil Jon.

After opening with 2005’s smash-hit ‘Caught Up’, the 45-year-old dived into renditions of ‘Superstar’, ‘My Boo’ and ‘U Got It Bad’.

However, the hitmaker’s frenetic 15-minute live set has been slightly overshadowed by one truly bizarre crowd moment.

At one point in the show, Lil Jon took the mic and sang a snippet of his and DJ Snake’s 2013 collaboration track, ‘Turn Down For What’.

Naturally, the crowd went wild but one guy in a blue shirt totally stole the limelight when he was tossed up in the air.

As the 53-year-old rapper jumped alongside the crowd, one of the show’s supporters could be seen being launched up into the sky.

During his trip, the partygoers’ limbs were shaking before he eventually belly-flopped back into the crowd below him.

The camera followed his baffling flight before he fell and strangely wasn’t seen on the live footage again.

After this guy got some serious height, the wacky scene was posted on social media and has since gone viral.

Many users of X, formerly Twitter, have taken to the platform to query whether the unidentified man is okay and that he survived the launch unscathed.

Others jumped on to claim that the man was probably having an absolute blast and that he would’ve had the best view in the house for a split second.

One viewer commented: "The players are dropping like flies and that dude is having the time of his life.”

A second said: “Someone see if this man is okay…”

“He will be fine,” laughed another.

A fourth commented: “Nah he good… took 1 for da team.”

Another football fan joked: “He had way too much Redbull.”
