This kid does a good job thinking on his feet. While performing the National Anthem at a middle school pep rally in Illinois, an overzealous student dropped and broke one of his cymbals. Embarrassed, he decided to make the best of the situation by setting down his other cymbal and saluting the American flag until the anthem is complete. The video has since gone viral and has more than 355,000 views on YouTube.
