Kanye West‘s fall Saint Pablo tour has been overshadowed by its inventive set design. You may not care about the set list or even the album, The Life of Pablo, responsible for the occasion—but you’ve heard about that floating stage

It hovers above the orchestra, as its centerpiece rapper performs toward 360 degrees of arena seating. 

Inevitably someone was going to try and come aboard for a ride on that sweet, levitating platform. Monday night in Atlanta, a doomed soul grabbed and climbed onto the set as it floated above him. West waved him off, but it was too late:

No injuries were reported, but I bet the area man was promptly asked to leave.
