There are many things that people wonder about in the world, like what it would feel like to dive to the bottom of the ocean, but sometimes getting what you ask for isn’t a great idea.
For example, the tallest building in the world may look like a mammoth to scale, but you wouldn’t want to know what it would feel like to suddenly fall from the top.
Well, luckily you can find this feeling and have your questions answered without actually throwing yourself off.
Norwegian artist, André Larsen decided that he would be the one to show people what it would look like to fall from that crazy height.
Honestly, if you’re scared of heights…look away now.
Though there are many different tall buildings in the world, this one takes the cake.
The Burj Khalifa hotel in Dubai currently holds the record as the tallest building and at 2,722 feet, it’s approximately the size of two Eifel Tower’s stacked on top of one another.
Now, that’s what I call a big building.
The artist who is currently based in Dubai for work, decided to pilot his drone from the very top of the Burj Khalifa and see what happened if he sped it towards the ground.
The results are terrifying,
Watching the video can make anyone feel icky, like you’re actually freefalling off the ginormous skyscraper.
You can also see all 163 stories of the hotel, making it a surreal experience as you take in all of the lavish features surrounding the building.
Likening it to riding a rollercoaster, it’s a very fast fall.
Thankfully, the drone doesn’t plummet to the ground, instead it straightens up and gives viewers a lovely view of the cityscape and surrounding scenery.
As the hotel is situated on the beach, the clear blue waters reflect brilliantly on the glass panels of the hotel.
But you wouldn’t be able to stay there without spending a bucket load of cash as one night in a room at the Burj Khalifa could cost on average a whopping 43k Rs.
That’s £1683, to you and me.
So, don’t try to pack your bags just yet - the Premier Inn will have to do for now.
