A few months back, an astronaut took the first-ever selfie in space, simultaneously defying gravity and Instagram's location settings. But in a giant leap for self-portraiture still on Earth, one man dared to take a selfie atop Brazil's 130ft-high Christ the Redeemer statue. And it's as panic-inducing an image as you can imagine.
On a trip to Rio de Janeiro to photograph preparation for the 2014 World Cup, the intrepid selfie subject, Lee Thompson -- co-founder of the UK-based travel company The Flash Pack -- became the first human being to photobomb Jesus's scalp after coworker Oliver Harvey persuaded Brazil's tourism board to let the team, crazily, scale the structure. And even more crazily, the tourism board said yes.
Hoisted to the top of the monument with GoPro cameras and accompanied by two fearless workmen, Thompson showed disdain for acrophobia and snapped the insane image from on high -- and if he is afraid of heights, the guy's just boss at hiding it in this video.
