Whoa, and you thought your last vacation was hardcore!!!
Photographer Lee Thompson recently took what must undoubtedly be the most epically scary selfie in South American history when he climbed atop Christ the Redeemer in Rio De Janeiro.
It was feat enough just to get inside the huge landmark — Lee needed to obtain special permission from the Brazilian government — but climbing all the way to the top?
Holy sh*t! (Speaking of which, we hope he went to the bathroom before his ascension.)
See Lee risk life, limb, and probably his immortal while scaling the super-sized savior…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Dayyyyum! We can't believe he had balls big enough to actually climb Jesus H. (the "H" must stand for HIGH) Christ!!!
In a statement, Lee confessed:
“I’ve never been afraid of heights or tight spaces, but experiencing acrophobia, claustrophobia and profound awe at the same time was something truly remarkable.”
All Lee needs now is a pic atop George W. Bush the Redeemer, and he can really die happy!
