Google Maps Street View: Can you spot the young man’s prank?
Google Maps Street view, created in 2007 and two years after the creation of Google Maps, is a popular online tool used by many.
Locating an address or planning a route is often what it is used for thanks to the 360-degree technology.
The images captured are knitted together to make a seamless view of the roads.
If something is captured when it is moving, say a person or a car, then a rather odd thing can happen.
One man found this out and decided to play a prank on the Google car.
He manages to get into the shot seven times on the same road as he runs around the car
Spotted in India, the vehicle is driving down a quiet road with a few bikes and other vehicles.
A young man is caught on the camera, wearing a white t-shirt and green shorts.
At first, he is captured by the technology and his legs are half missing thanks to the error.
Noticing the car, he then attempts to get into the shot more than once.
The resulting image creates a funny optical illusion.

He manages to get into the shot seven times on the same road as he runs around the car.
Whilst his face is blurred out in most of the shots, it is not in two images where he can be seen smiling at the camera.
His positions range from leaning on a tree nonchalantly, playing on his phone and looking into the distance.
In the final pose, he manages to run back into his house and put his hands on his head in his doorway, looking at the camera.
People are often caught more than once by the Google car, sometimes not intentionally.
Google Maps Street View: He pulls a number of poses for the car
One man was caught three times by the camera when walking along a promenade in Portugal.
Without realising, the man walks in a straight line and is then seen three times in the same shot, creating an optical illusion.
Moving vehicles are also caught in the crossfire.
A car appeared to be something from Back to the Future on Google Maps.
As it moved and the images were taken, it created a futuristic effect that made it look like time travel.
