"Rooftopping" Is The Crazy Instagram Trend That Has Models Hanging Off Towers In Dubai

How far would you go for Instagram fame? Would you climb a tower in Dubai and hang off the side?

In recent news, the internet has been divided over a rooftop stunt performed by Russian model Viki Odintcova.

For the stunt, Odintcova climbed to the top of a tower in Dubai and hung over the edge to be photographed.

If this sounds like unusual behavior to you, it might be helpful to understand that this is kind of a common thing people have been doing lately. It's known as "rooftopping" and literally means just what it sounds like: climbing to a tall rooftop and taking photos.



Now, let's get back to the controversy this shoot sparked. Obviously, the photos are amazing. But is it really so smart to publicize this kind of risky behavior? What about her professional image? Is hanging off the side of a tower the right way to get noticed these days?

Clearly, the stunt caught the public's eye despite the questionable legality or "correctness" of Odintcova's actions.

The jury's still out on this particular topic.

How do you feel about it? Smart marketing or reckless social media stunt?
