I will never understand what gets people so riled up about the Street View car rolling through their neighborhoods. In Europe, we have seen mobs block the car from entering their neighborhoods. I would like the Street View car to come down my road so I could prank it like this little girl from the UK did.
She was outside playing and spied the car coming. She decided to go all out and play dead. She took the acting job seriously and didn't just lay there; she kicked off her shoes so it looked like someone ran her over and knocked her out of her shoes. It's actually pretty funny, I don't think my 9-year-old son would have even noticed a car with a giant camera on top rolling down our street. That is unless said car was selling ice cream.
I have to wonder how long the image will stay up, I am sure some morons out there thought it was a pic of a real dead kid laying there and the Street View car just drove on by. Now that I think about it, a Street View car has already driven past all manner of dealings from a dog taking a poop to drug dealers and even a van on fire. Maybe thinking it would roll past a dead kid isn't that out of the realm of possibility.
