VIDEO: Adventurer dangles off Dubai Marina building

Watch British adventurer James Kingston film himself hanging out on top of a Dubai building

Knowledge story, The Knowledge

With the tallest building in the world, the globe’s largest shopping centre and plenty more superlatives to attribute to the city, we all know Dubai is a pretty cool place to hang out in.

However this guy proved that it literally is, in a newly-released video.

The clip titled, ‘Hanging out in Dubai…literally’ the maker of the James Kingston: POV Adventures series on YouTube does some rather stomach-churning stuff.

Viewers get a point of view look at the Marina part of town as James climbs on told of a building’s very peak and pans around to see the spectacular lights at nighttime.

Then we get a selfie stick moment as the Brit films himself from the sensational height, even smirking at one point as he moves the angles so audiences are provided with a fuller view of what he’s experiencing.

But it’s not until we see his feet dangling and one hand waving at the camera until we realise he’s hanging off the scaffolding from one arm that the true extent of the dangerous stunt is revealed.

He captioned the video: ‘Hanging out above the Marina on a recent trip to Dubai :)’

James also has another video shot in the emirate titled ‘Scary Crane Climb in Dubai’.

In the clip, James encounters, ‘One of the scariest climbs I've ever done!’

He says in the description for the upload he jokes that the extremely blackness of the night makes him feel like he’s in a horror movie.

James wrote: ‘Making my way up the building in the pitch black darkness on my own, avoiding random holes in the floor and feeling like I could be attacked by zombies at any moment!! What a view from the top though :)’

The UAE isn’t the only place the ‘YouTuber and Adventurer’ likes to show off his skills though. His page on the video sharing website displays his various trips to different corners of the world including Los Angeles, California, Germany and of course his home turf England.

In one clip he takes on London’s Wembley Arch, and another he practices parkour in Southampton.
