Prepare to have your mind blown. Don't believe us? This self-proclaimed daredevil does handstands on top of buildings--with no safety net or harness. Thanks to a camera attached to his shoe, he's able to get some pretty incredible shots, but seriously, what in the world would even compel someone to do that?


"When you do a handstand, you have to focus on the ground in front of you to keep your balance," Scott Young told the UK's Daily Mirror. "If it's only a few feet away that's fine, but I look right down to the bottom of the building - it's so far I just have to block it out of my mind...It's more of a mental thing than anything else - you've just got to focus your mind on what you're doing, not what you might happen."

Honestly, we can't even watch this guy without our palms getting a little sweaty and apparently, we're not alone. Scott's mom refuses to watch any of his stunts. "She got a bit annoyed when I showed her the first video, so I've stopped telling her about them now," he confessed. Yeah, can't say we blame her.

The 25-year-old is part of a team called 3Run that does parkour, freerunning and other stunts. Scott has traveled the world trying to find the best buildings to perform his handstands on top of. We have watched both of these videos and we know everything turns out fine, but we can't promise it won't still make you nervous to watch them.
