This Instagram Model Dangling From A Skyscraper Will Give You A Heart Attack

How I long for the days when "Do it for the 'Gram" meant doing something nice you didn't want to do for your grandmother, like stomaching two cans of SPAM because the expiration date was 1989 and she doesn't throw "good food" away.

Now, people are literally risking their lives to get the perfect Instagram shot.

Russian model Viki Odintcova trusted some dude to hold on to her as she dangled off of a 1,000-foot building just for no other reason than getting a good picture.


The 22-year-old model wrote,

I still can't believe I did it. Every time I watch the video my palms go sweaty.

Um, yeah, that's probably because your common sense realizes what a terrible idea this is?!

Imagine trusting some guy in overalls with your life like that?

The pictures were taken on top of Dubai's Cayan Tower, which was the tallest building with 73 stories when it was opened in 2013.

Is it not enough models have to constantly look beautiful, work on their fitness and eat healthy? Now, they have to risk their lives, too?

Viki, please don't pull another stunt like this again. You have so much to live for...

Like your photography hobby...

Your passion for video games...

And junk food! Oh, uh... I don't think that's how you eat a french fry?

You're just supposed to bite it.

Let's not forget your unquenchable thirst for knowledge!

Think about your love for America!

Wait a minute... a Russian model who has a deep love for America?

It looks like all those theories of Trump and Russia being in cahoots are not fake news.

And to think, they would have gotten away with it too if it wasn't for a 22-year-old model hanging off of a building, encouraging me to click through the rest of her Instagram for noble and totally not perverted reasons...
