Jimmy Fallon seems fine after taking a spill during his trip to Cambridge over the weekend.

Fallon was honored with the Elmer Award for Excellence in Humor by the Harvard Lampoon on Saturday.

During a parade in his honor, he was seen (and caught on video) tumbling to the ground. According to People, he fell while holding a bottle of Jägermeister and was taken to Mass General after the incident.

Fallon tweeted Sunday, “Thank you to @CambridgePolice for making the parade go as smooth as possible while being on a chariot.”

Fallon has been recovering from a severe finger injury that required surgery and an ICU stay this past summer.
