Daredevils climb Shanghai Tower, second tallest building in the world [VIDEO]


Do not watch this if you’re even remotely afraid of heights. I am not kidding. I’m very afraid of heights, so I only watched parts of this on YouTube’s minimum screen size and even so I may have briefly lost urethra control.

Shanghai Tower will be the second tallest building in the world – when it’s completed. At the moment, though it’s a construction site, it appears as if it’s already reached its final height. So, naturally some galloping, nutjob daredevils from Russia (where generations of carefully bred lunacy combined with flimsy security have made these stunts a growing trend), saw an opportunity to scale the thing while security was relatively low.

And it wasn’t enough to just climb it. They had to do things like sit on ledges and dangle from one hand and other stuff that made me briefly see spots.

Enjoy – or don’t, if you drank a lot of coffee earlier.
