Nori Aoki swung so hard he knocked himself over

During Wednesday's Astros-Royals game, Kansas City outfielder Nori Aoki took a big swing at a fastball off Jarred Cosart. Disappointed that it was a foul, he flopped onto the ground like a teenage girl throwing herself onto her bed after, like, the worst day at school ever:

Alternate theory: Aoki was hoping to spin in a complete circle after smacking the ball out of the park, finishing with the most balletic bat flip of all time. Alas, there was just a slight failure in execution.
