Watch: Fans too busy filming gig to break rapper Post Malone's stage dive
A US rapper suffered an embarrassing "School of Rock" moment during one of his shows when his fans failed to break his stage dive - because they were busy filming on their phones.
Post Malone - real name Austin Post - was performing in St Louis at the weekend when he attempted the rockstar moment, only to be met with the floor.
He was aptly performing his new song Rockstar when the incident happened and luckily he saw the funny side.
He tweeted after the gig: "Felt like jack black in school of rock tonight when i staged dived and nobody caught my fat a**. Wish I had lil uzi body."

With one fan asking if anyone captured the moment, another responded with a video which showed the crowd with their hands in the air, which were busy holding smartphones...
