As if Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, wasn’t cool enough already, two champion sky-divers and one very brave cameraman came along and made it even cooler — by base-jumping off of it. Skydive Dubai sponsored Soul Flyers World Champions Vince Reffet and Fred Fugen in this record-breaking base jump from the pinnacle of the skyscraper that extends more than 2,700 feet upwards.

Caution: Your mind might explode from the magnitude of tremendousness squished into this minute-and-a-half video.
