    Today, many drivers employ the service of Google Maps to help them get where they need to go. A while ago, Google launched an ambitious project to photograph the streets of the world in order to allow a person to see exactly where they were going before they even left the house.

    To do so, Google sent out numerous vehicles armed with cameras that took pictures at specific intervals as they drove down the streets.

    While Google was quite successful in mapping out areas with the project, the nature of the project also had an unintended result: The capturing of candid scenes of daily life throughout the world.

    Thus, as people have perused locations using Google Street View over the past few years, they have stumbled on some remarkable, bizarre and downright creepy images. We've compiled a few of our favorites, featured on, for your enjoyment.

  • Naked....and inside the trunk of your car? Alive? Perhaps he was stuffed in there by the mob, wasn't really dead the way they thought he was, and he just woke up.

  • That's one way to use an old VW bus.

  • We thought dalmatians were the official dog of fire departments. Looks like postal workers like them too.

  • Seriously, what has happened to Great Britain? And to think these are the people who were able to keep the landing at Normandy, the biggest single mobilization of ships and soldiers, secret from the enemy.

  • We aren't sure if the sign refers to the pooch or the owner.

  • This is going to really stink for a driver who is texting while driving.
