A VIRAL video shows a man dancing atop Edinburgh castle – roughly 80 feet high with no safety barrier.

The clip, uploaded to YouTube by ‘bigclivedotcom’, shows a man who appears to be a Tattoo worker doing the famous Gangnam Style dance on the castle walls.

Clever camera angles make it appear as if the man is dancing on an extremely narrow section of wall above the entrance to the castle – but he actually carries out the performance on some scaffolding just behind.

The video has been viewed almost 9,000 times in five days, and has been dubbed “brilliant” by amused viewers.

The 40-second clip begins with a man hitching up his trousers and waving at the camera.

Loud music begins to blare from below as the man takes a step back, and checks behind him to make sure he has enough room.

He begins the Gangnam dance, which went viral in 2012, by jumping in the air and crossing his arms.

He stamps his feet and waves his arms in the air in time with the music, appearing to come perilously close to the edge at times.

After half a minute of dancing, he stops abruptly and another person speaks into a microphone, saying: “Yes, that’s quite enough of that.”

The Gangnam music is eventually stopped, and replaced by a much more soothing tune.

Comments have flooded in from YouTube users, who found the video “awesome”.

Markus Bates said: “Brilliant, love it and some cool moves there Clive.”

Another user said: “This made my day. So brilliant. More dancing, Clive, more!”

Elly Davis joked: “Would have been funny if the one o’clock gun had gone off.”

Jeff Morris added: “This and things like this make life worth living.”

However, one user suggested that the video showed a lack of “respect”.

Matt Ti wrote: “Is this respect? I like 99.9% of your vids. I disliked this one.”

Another video, also uploaded by the same user, shows him standing in the Tattoo bandstand next to the castle, with commentary about dismantling equipment.

The clip shows Clive standing at the top of the seating area, looking down into the centre as a large crane moved equipment.

He says: “Lifting out loads. It’s time to get this stuff out the castle and on the truck again. Then that’s us for another year.”
