All the haters who say modeling isn't a tough job should take notice of Russian model Viktoria Odintcova. In a recent photo shoot, she went above and beyond to get some amazing pictures and video. And by "above and beyond," we mean she literally almost died.
Seeing an image like this out of context, you might assume it was photoshopped, or at least that she was wearing some sort of harness. You would be so wrong. To get the shots, Odintcova and her team traveled to Dubai, where they somehow got access to the roof of the 1,008-foot Cayan Tower. There, wearing short shorts and sneakers, she dangled off the side with nothing but a handhold to support her.
But for all that risk, she got some amazing footage. It's simultaneously romantic, sexy, beautiful, and nerve-wracking. So the danger was worth it… right?
No! This was a terrible idea. Nobody should ever have done this! She has the rest of her life ahead of her. At least, that was the opinion of many of her 3.2 million Instagram followers.
But that didn't stop them from watching the full video over and over. And it won't stop you either, will it?
Now, to help you relax, here are some pictures of Ms. Odintcova being less insane.
Nope, it's not working. I'm still just worried about her.
