World’s Tallest Building BASE Jump

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The Burj Khalifa, formerly the Burj Dubai, is the tallest building in the world. It is pretty much two Empire State Buildings tall, you can read all about it at Wikepedia. Though the building opened officially last week, the video above was shot before it opened and has a cool caper movie feel. BASE jumping is really intense, I don’t think I could even approach the edge of the building if I were half a mile above the ground, but these dudes jump off.

Apparently other people have jumped off the building since it opened, though this appears to have been sanctioned by ownership:
