back to article StreetView spots possible roadside nookie down under

Google's privacy-invading StreetView machines may have captured their most embarassing moment yet, after images of what looks an awful lot like a couple indulging in some horizontal folk dancing on the hood of a car emerged on Reddit. The photograph was taken here, on the Dukes Highway in the Australian State of South Australia …

Most likely explanation: couple driving, notices Google car, races on ahead, creates a Kodak moment.

Paris, because I don't think I have to explain why Paris.

Alternatively they could be friends of the driver of the Google car, and had been given prior warning.

The quality of the picture is better here because the Street View driver took his time driving past........

So it's not an exclusively British phenomena.

I would be tempted myself, and then send a complaint to google for digitally altering my image without my permission :-D

I wonder if anyone has complained because they were blurred rather than because they were not?

Actually

if you read the Reddit thread, the guy in the pic actually admits this is exactly what happened. They raced on ahead, then posed on the roadside. He's even got pics of the car in question as proof. Hehe...

The woman is waving at the google car, so I suspect a bit of a setup situation, rather than being caught in flagrante delicto.

Re: Style!

Went down that road on hols years ago. I didn't see them, but I stopped at Keith. The pub is also the Post Office, Town Hall, main restaurant, lunch-time social, but they don't sell Lamb Pies!!!

Re: Manchester Style

That's the best one! It made an appearance just a few weeks ago on the El Reg user forums in fact.

I wasn't too sure she was actually smoking or not, either that or she is pointing to the nearby railway viaducts and telling the punter an interesting yarn about Manchester's fine railway and industrial heritage! I guess when you work in an area surrounded by so much history you start to take an interest!

homosexual Australians

nobody minds homosexual Australians, thieving Romanians, drunken Poles, German mustaches and Russian gangsters. We all love them, it's what we call DIVERSITY!

p.s. on reflection, homosexual Australians?! I thought this was a French thing, the Down-underers are associated with other sports, non?

If that had been aimed at homosexual Australians, he'd have said "ram" not "sheep".

It does look phoney, I reckon they have seen the Google car, overtaken it and got far enough ahead to park up and set up a pose.

Yes, it is

Follow the Reddit link on the original article and they admit it:

If you read down the reddit thread, the bloke involved has popped up to say that it WAS a set up.

They saw the car and got ahead to pose. Apparently there's pic to prove the car....

Hilarious. I was also surprised by Google Street View when I came upon the same act, except between two Irish lads: http://google-street-view.com/some-irish-boys-having-some-fun/

Three boys posing with pants *on*. Nothing sexual about this photo. You guys are living up expectations.

Here's a slighty better view of the Manchester incident - http://i.imgur.com/qdN74Rd.jpg

Google haven't worked out how to blur that one nicely yet, so it just goes black if you get any closer that this - http://goo.gl/maps/DCMju
