AUSTIN, Texas -- It can take weeks for a high school marching band to learn a new halftime show.  The formations and marches are all memorized by the band members and sometimes you even have to march backwards to make it to your spot.

Recently, one tuba player with the Lake Travis High School Marching Band wasn't so lucky when he put it in reverse.

Almost the entire tuba section tumbled one over the other.  Six musicians fell, but no one was injured.  However, two of the tuba's were damaged as a result of the fall.

The band posted the video on its Facebook page with the post, "Our tubas are famous."
And the video of their tumble has gone viral on the Internet.  Besides appearing on the FOX 4 Morning Show, the tuba tumble was televised nationally on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."
