I understand the whole “different strokes for different folks” mantra. But when I’m looking for a shot of adrenaline, I’ll cue up a brand spanking new Brazzers video or pepper pedestrians with water balloons from my 3rd floor apartment. To me, that shit is living.
But some people just aren’t satisfied with a Tori Black new release or watching some smug finance asshole take a little balloon bath. Some need to climb to the pinnacle of one of the tallest buildings in China and snap a selfie while vertigo and gusting winds try their darnedest to turn these dudes into human pancakes.
Two of the dudes–Russian and Ukrainian photographers Vitaliy Raskalov, 21, and Vadim Makhorov, 25– featured in the below video make up the stunt duo called “On The Roofs.”
The skyscraper is the Shun Hing Square in Shenzhen, China–it’s the 10th tallest building in mainland China and the 28th tallest building in the world, standing at 1,260 feet above the ground.
“On the Roofs” Instagram account is full of breathtaking pictures and videos from the top of the world’s most famous structures.
Russky Bridge — Russia (second tallest bridge in the world behind France’s Millau Viaduct)
Christ the Redeemer statue — Brazil (125 feet tall)
Woolworth Building — New York City (792 feet tall)
Hong Kong is my best guess.
Ok, I’m starting to feel shitty about being a huge puss and not living my life. At least I got this Tori Black video to make me feel good now and even shittier after. Life is full of peaks and troughs. Just gotta roll with it.
