18 hilarious things found on Google maps
Google maps and streetview since their inception have uncovered some extremely interesting captures, many of them accidental, mistakes or red herrings put there for fun by Google!
We’ve decided to compile a roundup of some of the more interesting finds that we have spotted on our travels.
1) Rainbow Plane
Probably a kink in the internal images within Google, but here’s a 60’s feel with this grounded plane in New Jersey USA – Pretty trippy man.
2) Whoops Streetview just crashed
Beware of low hanging bridges Google. Just watch what happens when the driver of this streetview car misses the low bridge.. Ooopsie.
3) Bambi get it. (No longer available)
Proof if ever it was needed Google who killed Bambi. Look away animal lovers, and small children. Google later clarified the removal of the images.
4) Party On.
The location says Plymouth, England. Ex-squeeze me? Wayne and Garth have clearly got lost in Google streetview.
5) Horse Boy Strikes Again
The original Horse Boy, a man in a purple jumper and a rubber horse’s head mask, was spotted on Google Street View on Hardgate in Aberdeen. He has now found himself a girlfriend, and appeared in another location in the city.
6) Photobombing Seagull
Gulls can be pesky creatures at the best of times. This particular dive bombing crazy attention seeking gull was spotted trying to steal Google’s limelight. Although Google have removed the offending image, someone has grabbed it for historic purposes in Panaramio.
7) Google Stigview (take 1)
Seems he can’t keep himself out of the limelight
8) Caught with Suzy.
Tip of the week. If you are going to get yourself a blow up doll, make sure the wife isn’t watching. Better again, make sure that Google Streetview aren’t watching either.
9) Chased by Frogmen
Never cross a man holding a spear. Bad things happen. Looks like this Google Streetview car driver had to leg it sharpish when getting chased by a few crazies with full scuba gear.
10) Medieval Battle Royale
A battle to end all battles. Oh yes. This streetview capture has transported us back to medieval times with a epic challenge between these two warriors.
11) Bruce Wayne’s House
Holy house hunters batman. Looks like Bruce Wayne’s house has been uncovered by Google maps.
12) An Irish welcome to Streetview
I’ve heard of builders bum’s. But come on now lads. Behave yourselves.
13) Jesus hovers above a lake
The big man is watching, even on Google Streetview.
14) Take one step forward..
I’ve seen subliminal advertising before in my time, but this one takes the biscuit. I’m guessing those Google programmers are a big fan of their sugary, caffeinne filled drinks. Take one step forward, and watch Pepsi become Coke!
15) Stay Classy Canada
PropertyPal do not condone the drinking of beer in pickup trucks, and that’s all we are saying on the matter.
16) I’ve found Waldo
Some folks treat Google maps like a a giant game of where’s Waldo. We’ve found him!
17) Passed out Girl
Ah. The morning after the night before. Not a pretty sight.
18) The TopGear test track (take 2)
It’s not often you see the Stig outside of the TopGear test track, but this capture in LegoLand shows him brushing up on his driving skills.
