Burj Khalifa, one of Dubai's landmark buildings, pulled a disappearing act last week.
A video reportedly taken by an Emirati 'storm chaser', Sultan Bin al-Sheikh Mejren, went viral after it showed Dubai's Burj Khalifa being engulfed by dark clouds until it was no longer visible, according to Al Arabiya news.
The three-minute video of the world's tallest tower appearing to vanish behind could took the web by storm and received over 3.4 million views on YouTube in just in three days.
Watch the video below:
In an interview Sultan Bin al-Sheikh Mejren said he filmed the clip on the 14 March.
"The storm first hit [neighboring emirate] Sharjah but I missed it. I had lost hope of getting any footage near the Burj Khalifa and was about to pack up and leave," the 44-year-old Emirati told Yahoo Maktoob.
"I thought the storm is gone, the clouds have disappeared, everything is gone."
"But then I saw lightning and checked the Emirates Weather Forecast radar, which flashed a tiny reading of lightning.
"Suddenly, the hope that I might get the chance [to capture the Burj] returned. From that feeling until the storm - it was a matter of minutes. I have never witnessed a wall of rain and wind like that," he said.
