Watch: Three Dudes Sitting on the Tallest Building in the World


So, this is what it's like to sit at the very top of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Without a harness.

Sweet Jesus, don't look down.

Here's a replacement vid, I found, since the other was removed.

  2. How the heck did they get up there? Can't imagine they had permission. Scary stuff, but great view!

  4. I saw this earlier anticipating that one would fall while holding the phone. Now that would be cool.

  5. I'm so acrophobic that I couldn't watch more than 30 seconds of that before I started having honest to god heart palpitations and had to stop watching it.

    I can't imagine how people can be so cool, calm and collected in that situation.

    I'll probably have nightmares tonight.

  8. Terrifying! I couldn't even watch the whole thing, just looking at the video made me scared. I don't know how they could just sit up there without harnesses and just laugh and take pictures!.

  12. @James,
    They had harnesses. The poster of the video said he deliberately made it look like they didn't have them on.

    @Ila, I had to dry my hands half way through.

  13. The guy speaking was nice eye candy who might make me sweat otherwise, but my hands were dripping.

  14. Anyone who watched this can now safely watch 127 Hours.

  15. They had permission because these are stuntmen for Mission Impossible 4, doing the ol' hurryupandwait in a most unusual spot.

  16. OMG! I was ok until they pointed the camera downwards! I almost fell outa my chair!!!

  17. Trying to find a source for this video with more information on who these people are and how they got up there - but most of the links are broken or the video has been removed. Where may I find more background info on this video. I want to know how they got up there and if they had permission! Totally amazing.
