A group of adrenaline junkies have climbed up a Hong Kong skyscraper in order to hack the giant LED billboard that sat atop it.

In a scene that wouldn't look out of place in the blockbuster game 'Watch Dogs' the crew managed to reach the top of the skyscraper and then set about accessing the billboard's computer, hacking it and then showing their own message.

Showing a short trailer of their antics and then the message 'What's Up Hong Kong', the crew then left the building only to hop on a plane and go climb another giant skyscraper.

OK so it doesn't go as far as to show some big meaningful political message about peace, love and understanding but what it does do is look really cool.
