As part of an initiative to boost tourism in Egypt, the world's tallest man, Sultan Kösen, recently made it out to the Giza pyramids alongside Jyoti Amge, the world's shortest woman. 

The Egyptian Tourism Promotion Board invited the record-breaking individuals, making it the first visit for both to the North African country.

Kösen, who is of Kurdish descent, is 251 cm tall and Amge, an Indian actress, is 62.7 cm tall. 

The duo is also expected to visit other well-known sites around the country, according to the ministry of tourism.

Kösen, a part-time farmer in Turkey, rose to fame in 2009 after he was handed the Guinness World Record for the tallest living male.

His height is due to pituitary gigantism – a condition which is the result of an overproduction of growth hormone. 

Amge, who played Ma Petite in the TV series American Horror Story, began making headlines after she was handed the Guinness World Record in 2011.

She has a form of dwarfism called achondroplasia

People on social media completely lost their minds!

Drawing parallels came to life

And of course the jokes ensued

Amge (x4) = Kösen (x1)

Valid questions were raised

Every short girl right now...

Egypt's tourism sector

Egypt's tourism sector has been hit hard since the uprisings in 2011, which saw several transitions in the government. 

Significant political and social unrest followed, as well as a slew of terrorist attacks throughout Cairo and other areas of Egypt. Although the Egyptian economy continues to suffer, things appear to be improving overall. 

The country has also seen a 51 percent spike in international tourist arrivals in 2017, according to The Telegraph. While this is still below 2010 levels, it's definitely a positive sign.

A number of international celebrities have been invited to visit Egypt as part of the campaign to encourage tourists to visit including Will Smith, Salma Hayek, Kourtney Kardashian, Lionel Messi and many others.
