While Snopes.com has confirmed that the video is entirely real, their investigation did reveal that OlegCricket is actually Oleg Sherstyachenko. Oleg is a professional Russian daredevil acrobat who is affiliated with the Bankai Organization, a collective of Moscow-based acrobats and freerunners known for their flashy and dangerous stunts.
In case you didn't get yourself a big ol' mug of "Nope" today, this video ought to do it. It's only 15 seconds long, but I'm pretty sure just watching it has shaved at least 15 days off my heart's expiration date. This video, taken by YouTuber OlegCricket, shows him 43 floors up, jumping between the ledges of Dubai's Sofitel Hotel. If that wasn't enough, looking closely at the video reveals that there was no safety equipment involved. It's not surprising that the video gained over 2 million views in just one week, but some users are debating the authenticity of the video.
