New Fad? Taking Videos While Dangling Over Tall Buildings

I was never a big fan of Planking, that thing where people take their photos while lying in dangerous places. I am even less of fan of this apparently new Russian fad, yet to be unnamed:

Taking videos and photos while hanging over buildings, construction sites and other high locations.

A performance artist that goes by the handle Mustang Wanted performs those death defying balance acts on almost anything high tower he can lay his hands on (pun intended). OK, I am not sure that performance artist is the right title, but I could not come up with anything better.

MW also mentions that he has finished shooting a documentary on his adventures. I would love to what motivates anyone to pull off anything like that.

Am I the only one who thinks this is totally crazy?

    When *copycats* start dying of this stupidity, it wasn’t curiosity that killed the cat…

    I can see this being the premise for a really tasteless credit card commercial.

    Announcer: “Videos showing people doing something stupid…. a dime a dozen. Capturing the expression on their face when their hand slips and the realization sets in that they are totally f’ed…. priceless.”

    What I hate about these people is not that they are bound to kill themselves, but that they will probably hurt somebody else in he process. Worst Case scenario is of course killing someone, but getting yourself killed on somebodies building/construction site can result in people loosing their job or having to live with the fact that you found some douchebag splattered all over your car.

    It’s all fun and games, until someone goes “splat.”
