Would we call this a pyramid scheme? Or just absolute disrespect for one of the great wonders of the world?
Egyptians and travelers alike are furious this week after photos and videos were released by a photographer allegedly showing himself and a woman enjoying the sunrise... and apparently a full moon. And other things. I'm sorry, I can't even make a joke because I don't think this is funny. Have a look for yourself.
NSFW, and not safe for the sanity of archaeologists, historians, and respectful travelers everywhere.
The video was posted by Andreas Hvid, a self-described photographer and "urban explorer." His website shows photos on top of high rises, and inside an allegedly illegal trip to Chernobyl. So this isn't his first time doing something illegal while naked.
Egypt's Minister of Antiquities Khaled El-Anany said Sunday that the prosecution is currently investigating "how a Danish photographer and his girlfriend were able to scale the Pyramid of Khufu, and whether they really filmed an explicit pornographic video atop the Pyramid."
Many people are asserting that the video is fake and that it's impossible to get into the pyramids at night. That being said, a German teen managed to do it in 2016 and got banned from Egypt for life.
I think this image alone deserves a life ban.
What if we all climbed up the 4,500 year old pyramids? We wouldn't have them anymore, Andreas.
What do you think? Is the video real or fake? Is this a mystery bigger than how the pyramids themselves were built?
Sound off in the comments.
