Although the scene is bizarre, there is likely a rational explanation for what can be seen.

However why he was caught so close to the Google Car camera has no explanation.

Google Maps creates the images by sticking together the 360 degree image sets submitted by users, meaning small errors can easily occur.

Moving objects can often ruin the scene as they shift when the photos are taken.

The man’s face is also blurred out due to privacy reasons – something which Google takes very seriously.

The website states: “Google takes a number of steps to protect the privacy of individuals when Street View imagery is published to Google Maps.”

This means that all faces caught on street view are unidentifiable.

Houses can also be blurred if the owner wishes for it to be.

This is the case for a house in Kansas City, Missouri.

The American House appears to be on a perfectly normal street and the building itself doesn’t look to be out of the ordinary.

Even the car in the front driveway is blurred completely and unidentifiable.

Nevertheless, Google or the homeowner has decided the public should not be able to view the house.

Google Maps Street View captures all kinds of weird and wonderful scenes but takes privacy very seriously in all cases.
