The only natural reaction to finding out your friend is scared of something, is to subject them to it mercilessly – be it a scary movie, a pet dog, your singing voice, or something else entirely. In the case of Catboy from dubai92 radio, his fear his of heights.

The team at the Burj Al Arab thought they’d try to help ease Catboy’s fear of heights by taking him and his family up to the hotel’s helipad. Which has no guard rails. And is a long way from the ground. An acrophobic’s absolute nightmare.

Luckily for us, Catboy thought he’d make the best of the situation and brought along his 360º camera to snap some never-before-seen shots of the city and the Burj Al Arab. (Use your mouse – or finger on mobile – to move the picture around at your leisure.)

Here he is looking a little on-edge (get it?) as he holds the camera over the drop.
