(CNN) – Sometimes your eyes speak louder than your mouth, but all we heard is the wind.

There is still no explanation for how these three got on top of Hong Kong's fifth tallest building to take what's being described as “The world's scariest selfie,” by photographer Daniel Lau. He took the selfie by hold a stick holding the camera atop the 73-story building known as “The Center.”

The video ends when Daniel seems to get a text message.

The video also shows the trio eating bananas. But who eats bananas 1,135 feet in the sky?

Some theorize there's a more serious connection to primates, and that is an anti-racism message. This past spring, Spanish soccer fans threw bananas at Brazilian players they perceived as black.

When it happened during a Spanish League match, defender Dani Alves picked up the banana and took a bite.

It turns out the players had already consulted with an advertising agency, and thus was born the #weareallmonkeys campaign, featuring players and regular folks tweeting photos of themselves eating bananas to make their anti-racism point.

So was this a high-altitude snack or a message.

“That feels like a long way up to eat a banana,” one passerby said.

We just hope they didn't drop their peels from atop “The Center.”
