This Is One Sick and Scary Pictorial

Scary Pictorial
A recent video of Viktoria Odintcova dangling off the ledge of a 73-story building in the United Arab Emirates went viral. The question is, why did she do it?

The stunt, which was all captured on camera, features the Russian model in the risky act with a team of people who appear to be stuntmen and photographers.

The video features the crew practicing on ground, and then arriving at the Cayan Tower in Dubai to do the real thing (without permission).

Odintcova grips a blond helper's hand as he confidently encourages her to lean away from the top of the 1,000-foot building. As she leans back, her hair flows and her eyes close, and somehow she gets comfortable enough to look serene in images captured by her team.

As if that were not enough of a risk, she then gets down on her knees, while still holding the hand of her "spotter" and then gracefully flops off the rails, the guy's forearm strength the only thing keeping her from plummeting to the ground.

Somehow, she still looks beautiful, with her T-shirt falling off her shoulders, and her sneakers (they're not even fancy suction-cupped shoes or something high-tech!) kicking about as if she's just dangling from the side of a pool.
