Watch These Idiots BASE Jump Off a Massive Skyscraper in Dubai

Some people get their kicks from the Nike’s outlet store. Others get 'em from jumping off a 101-story skyscraper. OK, two different types of “kicks,” but both are pretty fly.
 
Take these people in Dubai. SkydiveDubai and XDubai have partnered with DreamJump to allow daredevils to BASE jump off the top of the world’s second largest residential structure, the Dubai Princess Tower, from a whopping 1,300ft.
 
The DreamJump system involves the use of the world’s largest urban zipline, which allows for more flexibility than the typical bungee cord. This means participants can do flips and jump in tandem. Because jumping off a towering skyscraper isn't already cool/crazy enough.
 
And if you just wanna live vicariously through others, this footage, complete with music that sounds like it's out of the movie Troy, will get that heart pumping.
