Man Trolls The World With Cheeky Circle Game Attempt On Google Street View
Okaaay, so I'm going to go for it - if you've never heard of 'The Circle Game', I'll explain it to you as best I can.
The rules of the game are pretty simple: one person simply forms a ring or circle with their thumb and index finger, before trying to trick another unsuspecting person to look at it. If they're successful, the first person (let's call them 'the winner') gets to punch the other ('the loser') as hard as they can on the arm with a clenched fist.
Oh, and it only works if the circle is deployed below the waist.
So now we're all on the same page, you may have noticed people have been attempting to catch out their mates in all sorts of weird and wonderful ways.
But this one tops them all - one sneaky LAD managed to fooled Google.
Well, ok... the Google Street View car. But still, Google nonetheless. And he probably didn't actually fool them; rather, the driver just had a busy day ahead.
Taxi driver, Kyle Hesketh, 29, was sat in the car with his girlfriend when he saw an opportunity he couldn't allow to pass by.
Kyle, from Ormskirk, West Lancs, told LADbible: "Basically I play the 'Circle Game' game all the time. I was parked up one afternoon and saw that the Google Street Maps car was pulling in where I was parked.
"I thought, 'Wonder if they will see this ?' So I did it and it picked it up.
"I play the game with my mates, brother, girlfriend and dad all the time, to their annoyance. I took the opportunity when I saw him driving in.
"I did it in mid October this year and kept checking to see if I would be on there, then my girlfriend rang me and it had been put on."
If you're wondering where it came from, 18 years ago there was an episode of Malcolm In The Middle which aired - it was called 'The Circle Game' and the rest seems to be history...
The fraternal game was revealed in the second series of the hit comedy, when the family are eating at the dinner table and Malcolm's brother Reese knocks his fork off the table. When Malcolm bends down to pick it up, his older brother takes the opportunity and delivers a pummelling.
Luckily, there was no hitting anyone in Kyle's case - but it is pretty hilarious that it's actually been loaded to Google Street View. Well played.
