Jared Leto left jaws dropping on Thursday night when he pulled off a truly unbelievable stunt.

The social media accounts for the Empire State Building shared footage of the Oscar winner and 30 Seconds To Mars frontman scaling the wall of the iconic skyscraper.

Over on X (formerly known as Twitter), people were left with just one question… why?

Well, as it turns out, the Suicide Squad actor was actually taking tour promo to new extremes with his stunt.

You see, the ascent was all to promote 30 Seconds To Mars’ latest world tour, which the group’s lead singer confirmed during a follow-up interview on Jimmy Fallon’s US talk show, first appearing in a comedy skit with the host and later sitting down for a chat about the stunt and upcoming tour.

“I’m so happy you’re still with us,” Jimmy joked at the beginning of the segment, to which his guest remarked: “Yes. I can’t believe I did it either.”

He continued: “We have a huge announcement today, and this is the reason I climbed the Empire State Building. After six years, we’re going back on the road, we announced a world tour.”

“You could have just come on our show and said that,” Jimmy pointed out, before presenting him with a wooden statue of the Empire State Building from the show’s backdrop. Or so he thought.

“The only problem is, this is the Chrysler Building,” Jared pointed out with a laugh.
