Social Media Influencer Was Thrown In Jail For Climbing Pyramids Of Giza

The pyramids of Giza in Egypt have wowed people for thousands of years. Despite the modern world adapting, growing and advancing, these monumental constructions have stood the test of time and give us an insight into what life was like four and a half thousand years ago.

Which it's why they're treated with respect from the tourists that visit the site every day...well, nearly everyone.

One social media influencer has found out the hard way what happens when you climb to the top of the Giza pyramid complex.

Vitaly Zdorovetskiy, who boasts more than three million followers on Instagram, posted a picture of him on top of one of the biggest pyramids. It only features his feet so it's hard to confirm whether he definitely made it to the top or whether it was just a fancy photoshop job.

But whatever it was, it apparently landed him in jail.

Writing on Instagram, the YouTuber said: "No words can explain what I just went through the past 5 days. I was locked up in Egypt because I climbed the Pyramids Of Giza.

"I've been in Jail many times but this one was by far the very worst. I saw horrible things and I don't wish this upon anybody.

"Was it worth it? F**K YEAH! I did it for a good cause and soon I'm going to share the whole video so the whole world can see."

Well, if he's promising to show video evidence of climbing one of the most famous constructions in human history without getting stopped by security then that will be a compelling watch.

If you're wondering where you've heard of Vitaly Zdorovetskiy, rest assured he made big headlines last year.


He encouraged his girlfriend to invade a Champions League match in Madrid, wearing nothing but a swimsuit promoting his X-rated website.

Kinsey Wolanski somehow made it past security and broke onto the pitch at Wanda Metropolitano stadium in Madrid in the first half of the game between Tottenham and Liverpool.

Aside from the model's brief stint in jail, all of those involved in the stunt paid out absolutely nothing for essentially placing an ad in a primetime slot.

But just how much was the coverage worth? Well, it's a lot - according to sports betting and business expert Darren Rovell, it would've cost them $3.97 million (£3.14m) if they'd paid for advertising through official channels.

This figure is the value in equivalent advertising time as of 5.30pm garnered by Vitaly Uncensored, as calculated by Apex Analytics.
