Roey Herzfeld, a friend of Glashofer, captured the hilarious moment. Speaking with Fox 5 he said had no clue what his friend was up to.
But the minute he unexpectedly saw Glashofer pull out a box of cereal, he started recording.
‘Akiva is definitely known to have a good sense of humor and always makes people laugh.
‘So it wasn’t such a surprise to me that he would try to make graduation more exciting,’ said Herzfeld.
His video was uploaded to Instagram account @aranjevi and from there it spread like wildfire.
Glashofer’s parents said they’re not mad at their prankster son. Sara and Paul Glashofer said their son was kind enough to tell them about the plan before taking the stage in his cap and gown.
