HONG KONG -- It's a thrill-seeker's selfie that can induce vertigo in mere mortals. But what's the story with snacking on bananas more than 73 stories up in the sky?

There is no explanation for how three men got on top of Hong Kong's fifth-tallest building to take what's being described as the world's scariest selfie. Photographer Daniel Lau is holding the selfie stick that's holding the camera atop the 73-story building known as the center.

The video ends when Daniel seems to get a text message. But who eats bananas 1,125 feet in the sky?

Some theorize there's a more serious connection to primates, that this is an anti-racism message. In the spring, Spanish soccer fans threw bananas at Brazilian players they perceived as black.

When it happened again during a Spanish League match, defender Dani Alves picked up the banana and took a bite. Turns out the players had already consulted with an ad agency and thus was born the #WeAreAllMonkeys campaign, featuring players and regular folks tweeting photos of themselves eating bananas to make their anti-racism point.
