HONG KONG —  First they climbed the second tallest building in the world in Shanghai and the video went instantly viral (today it has nearly 36-million views on YouTube).

Now the team of ‘video saboteurs’ is back with a new video of a climb to the top of one of Hong Kong’s tallest towers.

But this time there’s a new twist.

In the video the crews of daredevils can be seen sneaking into the building, climbing through restricted areas and coming out on top where they are seen snapping photos and standing with their feet over perilously high ledges.

Drone footage shows the team crawling all over the tip top of the building as the electronic billboard beneath them scrolls advertisements.

Then the video takes a turn and we see them hacking into the computer system for that billboard.

Suddenly that billboard is displaying the footage from their cameras and the message “What’s Up Hong Kong.”

Finally the video ends as the crew escapes the building, changes back into street cloths and we see the final drone shots of their handiwork displayed for the entire city to see as well.

Below is the original video shot atop the Shanghai Tower
