Prankster Was Caught 'Mooning' At Google Street View Camera

Prankster Was Caught 'Mooning' At Google Street View Camera

Toby Sullivan saw the Google Maps car roaming around and decided to take the opportunity

I don't know about you, but I don't think I've ever seen a Google Street View car in my entire life - I definitely wouldn't recognise it if it was right in front of my eyes, that's a dead cert. Well, not unless it actually had 'Google Street View' emblazoned on the side. I might stand a chance then.

But recently more and more people have noticed the car and decided to sieze the day... for instance, there was the bloke who grabbed his opportunity with both hands and had a cheeky attempt at 'The Circle Game'.

Now the bar has risen because one guy took it upon himself to pull a 'moonie' at the Google Street View vehicle.

In April 2018, Toby Sullivan spotted the tech giant's car as he walked with a pal in Hayes, Hillingdon, Greater London, and immediately knew there was only one thing to do: he dropped his trousers and flashed his bare buttocks for the camera.

Nice one. Cometh the hour, cometh the man...

It appears the prankster foiled Google's 'cutting edge blurring technology' as his behind was published unblurred for all users to see on the photo mapping service.

However it appears Google has since caught wind of the bottom and has thoroughly pixelated his behind - though it doesn't take an awful lot of zooming to find a 'crack' in their method.

Google caught wind and blurred the moonie.

Delighted Toby shared his brazen antics online and wrote: "Fully made it on Google Maps. I saw the car thought fuck it why not. I can't fucking believe it."

The original Street View image shows Toby carrying a plastic bag and squatting while dragging his navy tracksuit bottoms down and baring his rear.

The image has since been edited to pixelate his bare flesh but is still winning praise from people on social media finding it hilarious and branding him a hero. Perhaps not the hero we need, but certainly the one we deserve.

Since learning his bum was blurred, Toby posted: "These arseholes have only gone and blurred it!"

Google state that it uses 'cutting edge technology' to protect people's privacy on their mapping service. Looks like it as well...

Their website 'blurring policies' section states: "We have developed cutting-edge face and license plate blurring technology that is designed to blur all identifiable faces and license plates within Google-contributed imagery in Street View.

Google failed to blur Toby's privacy initially.

"If you see that your face or license plate requires additional blurring, or if you would like us to blur your entire house or car, submit a request using the Report a Problem tool. Please note, however, that once Google blurs an image the effect is permanent."

Looks like Toby's hit something of a bum note, as far as they're concerned. SORRY NOT SORRY.

Google has been contacted for comment.
