Whether you call them daredevils, skywalkers, or urban explorers, the Russian cadre On The Roofs risk their lives, limbs, and law to give us an escape from our rolling chair-bound woes. The skyscraper scaling group spearheaded by Vitaliy Raskalov and Vadim Makhorov bring their exploits to Hong Kong for a new stunt: hacking a massive billboard to give the city a larger-than-life, “What’s up?”
The larger than live video takes you on a journey through the busy streets of Hong Kong then up the colossal building to capture their daring act. Already at 1 million hits, the dynamic team shows no signs of stopping regardless of the law or breaking the law. Which further questions their actions of mere egotism or renegade pioneers in a new form of self expression. Taking a stand against noisy advertisers and the immense commercialization of our urban fabric.
