Jelly Roll, known for his humor and self-deprecating charm, couldn’t resist poking fun at himself after taking an unexpected tumble down the steps of a private airplane. 

The “SHE” singer took to TikTok to share a recap of the hilarious mishap on Tuesday evening (Oct. 10).

“Storytime With Uncle Roll”

“If you want to see me bust my a**, keep watching this video,” he began before sharing the backstory to what happened. “Storytime with Uncle Roll. So the other day I had a flight and they parked the bus right outside the plane. It was the coolest thing ever. So I was like ‘y’all this is crazy I’m going to videotape me walking straight from the bus to the plane. This is going to be the coolest thing ever’ and I did.”

He shared a clip of that moment, which showed him exiting his tour bus and walking onto the airplane tarmac, unveiling a private jet awaiting his arrival. Then on his way home from the undisclosed location 

“So on the way back I was like ‘I think I should film the same thing’ because the bus was parked outside the plane again. I was like now, I’m going to do it walking from the plane to the bus,” he explained. 

Falls Down The Stairs

The video then cuts to the “NEED A FAVOR” singer walking down the steps of the private aircraft. As Jelly Roll made his way down the steps, he took a tumble down the final two steps. His fall prompted concern from the others accompanying him on the flight.

“Oh sh*t, yea, I think I broke something,” Jelly Roll shouted in pain.
