Skywalking: Russian Teens Risk Death For Daredevil Photos

This latest teen photo trend might be the clearest illustration of the difference between Russia and America. We lie down on stuff. They pose, or Skywalk, hundreds of metres in the air with nothing between them and the sudden splat of failure.

Skywalking is the new Russian planking, basically, but it's also totally freaking nuts. This seems to have been going on at some level for a while, but the trend is growing in popularity. Seriously, look at some of these shots.

Here's a video of one of the above shots being made, but there are lots more on YouTube. They're breathtaking in the sense that it makes it hard to breathe even several thousand kilometres away in an office chair. Udachi, young Skywalkers. [Caters via Sun, MNN via Petapixel]

    It's a little crazy, nevertheless, awesome pics!

    My daddy drank vodka, so did his daddy and his daddy's daddy. You can see the result.

    Some people are just crazy, enough said

    With all the male fatalities from alcoholism, war and crime... now this, no wonder the male:female population ratio is so screwed in Russia.

    let them do it, it'll give us the opportunity to flush the gene pool again

      If only commenting online were as deadly! :P

        BAHAHAHAHAHHAH

        Thanks olearymo, I just snorted coffee out my nose :(

    Someone needs to send Russia a copy of Photoshop! Same results, non of the risk!

    All we needed was a good gust of wind and there would be one less idiot in the world.

    I think they need to go to the next level and make their own bungee cords.

      hahaha already done

    Have seen a few videos from that tower (or one that looks very similar). Absolute nutters! Would be a rush though
