Actress Sandy explains what happened
For her part, Sandy explained in a tweet to her through her official Twitter account, and said: “My dear republic, I would like to make it clear that the rise of the pyramid is dangerous and not allowed, and accordingly graphic techniques were used because the scene of the pyramid in my last ad appears in this way.”
Clarification regarding the pyramid scene:-
My dear audience, I would like to make it clear that the ascent of the pyramid is dangerous and not allowed, and accordingly I resorted to graphic techniques because the scene of the pyramid in my last advertisement appears in this way. We encourage anyone to violate safety instructions or put themselves at risk.#Sandy_above_pyramid pic.twitter.com/CCf4MVVJ5G

And she concluded: “We encourage anyone that he violates safety instructions or puts himself at risk.”
According to the Egyptian newspaper, Al-Watan, archaeological researcher Magdy Shaker called for an investigation into the incident, especially after punishing a number of adventurers who climbed the pyramid before.

He explained that climbing the pyramid to its top is prohibited according to the law and regulations of the Ministry of Antiquities in Egypt, where Law No. 117 of 1983 criminalized climbing the pyramid and imposed a penalty of up to one month in prison.
And a fine of no more than 100,000 pounds or one of these two penalties for anyone who climbs Egyptian antiquities, commits an act contrary to public morals, offends the country in museums or archaeological sites, or surreptitiously enters them, provided that the penalty is doubled if the two mentioned actions are linked to climbing and destroying.
For his part, the director of the pyramid’s antiquities area, Ashraf Mohieldin, revealed that “the aforementioned video was filmed in the pyramid area, but the singer Sandy did not climb the pyramid or even take it down by plane, as it was circulated on various social media sites.”
He explained that “the pictures that the singer published on her pages have been modified with Photoshop techniques.”
He pointed out that the company executing the advertisement took pictures from different angles using a drone camera.
Pictures of the singer were also taken on a similar model in front of Chroma, and the videos were installed.
