In a quirky video, an animator displayed several Dubai tourists as they held up lion cubs towards the iconic Burj Khalifa; the world's tallest building. 
Marty Cooper, who publishes his work on Instagram via the handle @hombre_mcsteez imagined a scene where tourists held up something else other than smartphones towards the Burj Khalifa. Cooper then replaced the smartphones with the young Simba from the Lion King film. He wrote about his concept: "Replacing tourists' phones with Simbas (Simba-ing) at the Burj Khalifa."
The results of his artistry are both interesting and hilarious.

Last year, a Dubai expat captured tourists and residents bending and lying down to take the perfect Burj Khalifa photo.
