Leave it to the Chinese to make a terrible prank!

One of the world (in)famous Chinese walkways in China went viral for all the wrong reasons, when a tour guide was reduced to tears and how to crawl across the class. Why, you ask? Because someone decided it was a good idea to add illusions of the 3,871-feet-above-sea-level glass path cracking beneath your very feet! And it is a looong way down!

There is no way you are walking away from this without thinking you are fat (you are not, by the way)

The glass walkway around the eastern face of the Taihang Mountain in Hebei, China is making its rounds on social media, not because if the gorgeous scenery that it provides a view of, but because it will probably give you a heart attack when you walk over it. We hope this man is OK, or at least he is very good actor!

The East Taihang district administration sent out an official apology on its WeChat channel, to explain that the splintering glass was merely an "effect" it worked into a portion of its bridge, in order to be "provocative." In the apology, they said that the walkway designers had placed shattered fragments of glass in one of the layers, stretching across several panels at the end of the bridge. When you walk over those panels, the glass appears to shatter under your feet, and you can even hear the sound of glass breaking as you walk.

So the glass isn't really breaking, it just looks and sounds like it. Apparently.
