PROVO, Utah – BYU mascot Cosmo is unreal. He levels up again whenever you think he’s tapped out on his stunts as a mascot.

Cosmo’s latest stunt was a strongman move during the Utah State game. He starts from the ground in a pushup stance, then keeps pushing his way up levels of stacked tables.

What’s even better is that the tables look like they were rolled out from underneath a stage at a local Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints stake center.

That’s four levels of pushups, then he starts doing one-handed pushups and tops it off with a smooth backflip at the end.

No wonder this guy won a mascot National Championship back in 2020.

BYU mascot Cosmo is a viral sensation

Since Cosmo’s stunt, social media has marveled over the move. It’s just the latest viral moment from Cosmo, who once popped off in a dance to Ayo & Teo’s “Rolex.” He had a wild three-point slam dunk in a basketball game and has had many stunts since then.

Over the weekend, ESPN’s College GameDay featured Cosmo on “You Had One Job” over the weekend, highlighting Cosmo’s stunt against the Aggies.

Here’s a recap of some notable social media reactions to Cosmo’s latest viral stunt.
