That's full of WIN!

No idea what rubbed them the wrong way about it, but that's gotta either scare or greatly amuse anyone who legitimately accesses that part of Street View. (i.e. is looking for something in the area, not just following a link as above.)

My theory is nothing rubbed anyone the wrong way. They were simply pranking Google and Street View users.

Holy Norse-snorkels batman!

Is that Norway, or Finland?

[edit] btw - You can tell this Street View driver is an aussie.

Erm...yes, that was the other thought on my mind.

I believe I took Snaggy's "Angry Norwegians" remark the wrong way.

That'll teach me to post pre-coffee... [Wink]

I'ld go with the pranking theory. There are lots of pranks and other amusements. Ladies, let me just remind you that the cars do not have SUYT painted on the side.
