VIDEO: Stuntman Oleg Cricket crawls off Dubai skyscraper

Time Out Dubai has the Instagram video as stuntman Oleg Cricket crawls off Dubai skyscraper in the Marina. See the crazy footage

We've all come to love - and be incredibly scared by - the high-wire stunts that take place on rooftops across Dubai.

Our home has become something of a magnet for daredevils looking to push the limits. One of those, Oleg Cricket, has dropped a new video that we think is one of the most insane yet.

Having previously posted footage scampering around the outside of Marina Heights, jumping between protruding platforms in JBR, and perching atop the tallest residential tower in the world, Princess Tower, the stuntman has been forced to defend himself against claims he photoshops his most daring images.

In a short clip on his Instagram page, posted on March 26, the Russian can be seen lying prone over a sheer gap on the top of one of Dubai Marina's tallest towers. 'Crab crawling' out from the safety of the rooftop, he goes so far as to let go with hand.

The footage is captioned: "I promised to show #nophotoshop #fake", in an apparent swipe at his critics.

In interviews, Oleg has said that fear doesn't even cross his mind.

"I was not thinking about fear or any other emotions - there was no time," he was quoted as saying in the Daily Mail after a clip emerged of him swinging from a friend's arm as he dangled 40 floors above the ground. "Most people react - and will react - negatively, but they don't understand the other side of my thinking. They are taught that it's scary and something people are accustomed to, but it's a different philosophy to know what I'm doing."
