Google Street View Car Stalked by Snorkel Men

By - Source: Tom's Guide US | B 35 comments

They'll be set when Google starts charting Atlantis.

It seems that the Google Street View car is a chance for some at internet fame (even if it's a blurry affair).

A couple of guys in Norway must have know that the Google Street View car would be soon passing through their street, so they camped outside on lawn chairs while dressed in full snorkel gear.

Judging from what Google now displays on its Street View of its Maps service, the dynamic duo was successful.

Those of you who haven't had your streets charted yet – keep an eye out for the Street View car. Either shutter your windows or get yourself noticed.

    This was not staged.
    The full snorkel gear is actually the national costume in Norway and everybody wears it. The only change come when they go out for fancy dinner or in the opera, then it's considered polite if they leave the harpoon at home..

    How does one find out when the street view car is coming near them?

    Judging by the chairs on the lawn next to this place one can say that they were suited up and waited for the car to come by... true indeed though, if you go on Google maps and put the address up there you can actually see them!

    yesterday I saw a different news regarding more or less the same thing in Germany... seems the "google car" is a celebrity in its own right.. People following it, people tracking it, people camping out waiting for it.. its like the reception that the queen would get in the UK or Paris Hilton in the US

    GOOGLE SHOULD make this into profit but opening or adding a section to its service: "CLICK to find out what flavor of craziness can be found at this location"

    Ah, Norwegian pride :) 
    dykking.no (diving) reports that the guys knew the driver of the google car and such knew sort of when he'd pop into their area.

    Greeting from Norway!

    It is. You can verify the address. Life isn't perfect even in Scandinavia, though there are ways to make it more tolerable as you can see :)
