A teenager really fell for his prom date, after a video of him plummeting down the stairs went viral.

Austin Cooper (18)  and his girlfriend Jordyn McManuswere (16) suited and booted for her prom in Wellington, Florida on Saturday when things took a turn for the worse.

Video footage shows them looking suitably glam in a suit and a black evening gown as they walk down the stairs together.

After just a few steps though Austin loses his footing and tumbles down.

Jordyn shared the video online and it quickly went viral, racking up more than 110,000 re-tweets and over 30,000 likes.

Her dad Terry McManus also saw the funny side of Austin's slip up.

He told Palm Beach Post: "Once you know that Austin fell down and he didn’t get a scratch on him other than his ego, it’s hilarious, man.

"He comes around the corner like he’s James Bond and then he’s James Klutz."
