Last month we wrote about 22-year-old Russian model Viki Odintcova, who posted a picture on Instagam that left many of us asking, "Is that real?!"

In the photo she is seen dangling from someone’s arm at the top of Cayan Tower in Dubai Marina.

A video recently uploaded to YouTube confirms that the stomach churning stunt is in fact real (as far as we can tell).


It shows how she and her photographers prepared, ran up the tower and then went ahead with the dangerous stunt. In a terrifying part of the video that we could barely watch, they have to stop the stunt when she’s already over the edge, because they don’t seem comfortable with the position.

It’s the latest in a long string of daring photographs being taken in cities like Dubai, with other places such as Hong Kong and Moscow being popular.

We can’t see any of the fun in this. It’s a straight up no from us.

You can see the finished photo here.
