Google Maps: Mysterious man caught in bizarre act on London street


Google Maps has made a name for itself for not only its navigation technology, but it’s ability to uncover some of the weird and wonderful scenarios happening around the world. Users are increasingly scouring the map in a bid to find the best incident, ranging from the weird to the hilarious, as they share it with their fellow map lovers.

The hilarious image made its rounds on Reddit, with many praising the unidentified man’s flexibility.

One user said: “I wish I could do that move – it was probably impromptu too. Impressive!”

Another said: “Thank God he’s wearing long shorts otherwise this camera would’ve got quite a view.”

This isn’t the first time Google Maps has captured someone showing off their moves.

Two bin men were captured performing for the camera on Google Street View.

The image, taken on the corner of High Field Road and April Croft in Birmingham, showed the two men raising their hands in the air and looking directly into the camera.

In addition, another man was caught dabbing on the streets of Australia, while riding his bicycle.

Spotted on a road called Cecil Place in Australia, a young man on a bicycle can be seen following the car.

The man then decides to dab, a dance where the person drops their head to their elbow whilst pointing their arms the other way.

He manages to do it the whole way down the road despite having both of his hands off the handlebars.

Despite these men’s willingness to be seen on camera, one of the rules of Google Maps is that people’s faces are blurred out for privacy.

On their website, Google Maps state: “Google takes a number of steps to protect the privacy of individuals when Street View imagery is published to Google Maps.

“We have developed cutting-edge face and license plate blurring technology that is designed to blur identifiable faces and license plates within Google-contributed imagery in Street View.

“If you see that your face or license plate requires additional blurring, or if you would like us to blur your entire house, car, or body, submit a request using the “Report a problem” tool. Please note, however, that once Google blurs an image, the effect is permanent. If you submit a request to have your house blurred from Street View imagery, all historical and future images of your house will also be blurred.”
