If you saw the Google Maps Street View car coming down the street, you'd probably be tempted to do SOMETHING stupid in front of it. And thousands of people have had the same idea.
56-year-old Dan Thompson owns a car repair shop in Edinburgh, Scotland, and 31-year-old Gary Kerry is one of his mechanics. They were outside the shop back in August of 2012 when they saw the Google Maps car coming.
So they thought it'd be funny to stage a FAKE MURDER. Dan got down on the ground and pretended to be dead . . . and Gary stood over him with an ax handle. Then the car went by, took the photos, and they forgot all about it.
Well, Google eventually updated their Edinburgh maps with those photos. And someone finally spotted them, freaked out, and called the cops.
The police actually showed up at Dan's repair shop to investigate the murder . . . and after they talked with Dan and Gary, they found out it was just a joke. No charges were filed . . . and you can still see the fake murder on Google. (Buzzfeed)
