I'll Stick To Blogging: Movie Location Scouts Chilling On Top Of World's Tallest Buildin

November 10, 2010


As you may or may not be aware of (extra points for those of you who didn't), Tom Cruise recently filmed a scene for Mission Impossible 4: Like, 4 Real, There's No Way Anybody Could Possibly Complete This One that involved him jumping off the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa (already seen HERE) in Dubai. Well this is a video of the movie's location scouts scoping out the very top of the building. It was going around the interwebs that the guys aren't strapped in, but apparently they are and just hid their harnesses. Clever. At least until you think you've hidden your harness, only to realize mid-fall you never clipped in after all. Then it becomes less clever and more "OH SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT!" until you're rendered to nothing but a few unidentifiable teeth by the road below. Which is exactly why you should never go anywhere without proper identification. The more you know.

UPDATE: Working video added (until they take this one down too).

Hit the jump for a short video of the you've got to be kidding me in action.
