A Russian couple set the Thai internet on fire recently after they posted a dangerous clip of themselves atop a construction crane high above Pattaya Bay.
We thought that they were so moved by the beauty of Pattaya Bay that they risked life and limb to create the shocking Feb. 1 video of themselves atop the crane, which is apparently situated on top of the Waterfront Suites & Residences, an abandoned building on Bali Hai Pier.
However, a bit of internet sleuthing revealed that they are Angela Nikolau and Ivan Beerkus, a couple famous for posting these risky elevated selfies all over the world, a dangerous pastime called “rooftopping.”
Nikolau, 23, is actually called the “world’s riskiest selfie girl” and the couple’s shared Instagram account boasts a following of 44,000. The couple appear superfit on their feed, showing that they are yogis and acrobats in addition to adrenaline junkies.
They are responsible for this super-viral photo as well:
Here’s a photo of them in Bangkok from March 1 of last year:
It’s unknown how they gained access to the crane and they did not get permission to be there.
