Thanks to the sheer number of cameras that are scattered around today, there’s a feeling that “Big Brother” is always watching us. And this is especially troubling if we’re caught in situations that we’d rather forget. So with that in mind, we’ve compiled a list detailing 40 of the funniest moments to have been snapped by Google Street View.
40. A Tight Fit
As we can see here, humans aren’t the only ones to be caught in embarrassing spots on camera. This poor pooch probably indulged in one too many dog biscuits before getting stuck.
39. Grassy Slopes
In most cases, skiers need snow to showcase their skills. But this guy seems to think that he’s an exception, traversing a grassy hill like one of the mountains in the background.
38. The Not So Fast And Furious
From the gloves to the goggles, this driver’s attempt to look the part in his vintage vehicle might not have had the desired effect. So Vin Diesel and company can rest easy for now.
37. Three Places At Once
Certain images from Google Street View cameras can split people into different places at once. The man in this photo fell victim to that, and his facial expression adds another dimension to the weirdness on show.
36. Walking The Bird
Judging by this Google Street View picture, there might be a reason why bird walking hasn’t taken off around the world. Alongside tired arms, the games of fetch just aren’t the same.
35. Tipping Point
While sidecars are a rarity on today’s roads, this driver tried to pull off a spectacular trick with theirs. If there were a crowd, the attempt would probably receive a sympathetic clap or two.
34. Chillin’ In The Back
If relaxing in the back of a pickup truck were a sport, this guy would be a serial champion. Just look at the way he’s holding that bottle from a flat position!
33. Bear Country
When camping in certain parts of the world, you need to be wary of bear sightings. In this instance, though, an encounter with the real thing might’ve been a little less creepy.
32. Weird Science
To pull off this Google Street View photo, the three “scientists” needed to get their timing just right. But we can neither confirm nor deny the legitimacy of the experiment on show here.
31. Highway Horse And Carriage
For the couple in the horse and carriage, this was probably one of the happiest days of their lives. But the same couldn’t be said for the motorists in the traffic jam behind them.
30. Robin Hood Lite
Channeling his inner Robin Hood, this guy looked to test his archery skills in a totally safe way outside the house. Even so, the paramedics are likely just out of shot.
Have you ever found yourself in a position where you desperately want to get off the street to avoid embarrassing looks? We get the feeling this guy can relate to that.
28. An Afternoon Gallop
Over the course of a long day, we all need to stretch our legs. But this equine-faced individual took the fitness game to new heights, putting both humans and horses to shame.
27. Heroes For Hire
From Captain America to a pair of Robins, this bar’s security task force might’ve been deemed a little excessive. Nevertheless, any nearby super-villains were sure to be quaking in their boots.
26. Strike A Pose
When certain people spot Google Street View cameras, they can’t help but strike a pose. In the case of this biker, he played it safe with a dab. Keep your eyes on the road, though!
25. Heavy Shovel
You’ve all heard of air guitar, right? Well, the guy in this photo has added his own spin to the dance. Whether it catches on in the same way, however, is highly debatable.
24. Dentist On Wheels
No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. That is indeed a dentist’s chair on the back of a moving rickshaw. If you’re into the idea of extreme dentistry, this could be your lucky day!
23. Coastal Yoga
For some people, yoga is a very private practice that they perform at home. But this woman’s stretching on the coast caught the attention of at least one surprised motorist. At least they seem to be parked.
22. Caring Friends
A pratfall is always capable of drawing a laugh, especially if it happens to someone you know. Even so, this young girl might want to think about investing in some new friends.
21. Swamp Thing
When looking at this image, you can’t help but feel a mixture of sympathy and second-hand embarrassment for the person, or monster, under the seaweed. Did anyone in the background take notice of them?
20. Losing Control
Regardless of a bike rider’s age, embarrassing falls can still happen if they lose control. Unfortunately for this youngster, his awkward spill was documented for future generations by a Google Street View camera.
19. Bark Seat Driver
If your dog walks have become a little stale and boring, you can always take a page out of this guy’s book. At the very least, his pooch seems to be having fun.
18. A Prank For The Ages
While it was undoubtedly time-consuming to pull off, this prank will now live forever thanks to Google Street View. The driver might still be removing the cling film as we speak, though.
17. Sidewalk Scuba Diving
For these two individuals, normal scuba diving just didn’t cut it anymore. Instead, they wanted to wrangle up a wild sports car or elusive white van with their high-tech equipment.
16. Segway Gang
Street gangs can be problematic at the best of times, but you certainly wouldn’t want to mess with these guys. Just look at them. Could you realistically outrun a group of segways?!
15. Why The Long Face?
There are few worse feelings than being stood up by a date. Unfortunately for this masked diner, his misfortune was captured via a Google Street View camera. Maybe try a different face next time.
As any professional superhero will tell you, crime-fighting is an exhausting line of work. But even so, crashing on a park bench during your free time isn’t ideal. Go back to your secret hideout!
13. Feline Headwear
Whether it’s a closet or a chest of drawers, cats love to climb tall objects and look at the world below. However, this feline took things to another level. Too bad no one noticed.
12. Loving Pets
Man’s best friend? Tell that to this poor soul after two dogs brought them down off their bike on the road. What’s the world coming to if you can’t trust loyal canines?!
11. Topping Up The Tan
Have you ever asked yourself what might’ve happened if E.T. didn’t go home at the end of Steven Spielberg’s 1982 classic? Well, this Google Street View camera could have the answer.
10. Curbside Tantrum
Child tantrums can test the wills of the most patient parents or guardians. But the lady in this shot wasn’t having any of it. The kid might want to think about calling it quits.
9. Ninjas In Training
If these guys hoped to have a future as ninjas, they’ve already failed their first task quite miserably. Yes, we can see you. So can the Google Street View camera!
8. The Lawnmower Man
Gardening is supposed to be a relaxing pastime, but you’d never get that impression from this man here. Maybe the heat got to him as he was mowing his lawn.
7. King Of The Castle
Your eyes aren’t tricking you here. That guy in the background is indeed wearing a crown. Ruling over a piece of land is a tiring business, so we’ll excuse his public nap.
6. Open Up Your Loving Arms
We’ve all done embarrassing things in the privacy of our own homes, free from prying eyes. This guy didn’t have that safety net, though. At the very least, we hope his greeting was reciprocated.
5. The Chase Is On
In the days of the Wild West, scenes like this probably happened every few hours. But in the time since then, one thing has remained the same: you can’t outrun a horse, kid!
4. Pick Up A Penguin
Sometimes a picture can say a thousand words. This one, though? There isn’t a number that could do it justice. Wherever that guy and his penguin are going, it’s sure to be a riot.
3. Riding In Style
If you drive a fancy car, you’re sure to earn a bit of attention from your fellow motorists. However, few people can compete with a vehicle like this. It’ll save space on the driveway, too!
2. The Battle To End All Battles
In history books, famous battles are recalled in minute detail. But try as they might, these two warriors won’t be earning their own chapter. At least the Google Street View camera took a photo for posterity!
1. Pigeon Posse
In 1963 Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds terrified audiences across the U.S. However, not even he could’ve devised something as horrifying as this. So if you see a posse of pigeon people, run. And don’t look back.
