Google Maps Street View: You'll never guess what the man in this snapshot is celebrating

Written by admin

Google Maps Street View tends to capture the ordinary goings-on of most people’s lives  – with the majority having no idea they’ve been photographed.

So, every once in a while, some people snapped by the online mapping service really stand out, such as in this rare scene.

Google has photographed a man who appears to be having the best day of his life – and is making sure the world sees his celebration.

Viewers would assume something wonderful must have happened to the man, such as winning the lottery, but the reality is that the man was simply in the middle of cutting grass when he decided to show off his joy.

Nevertheless, this mundane activity has not curtailed his happiness and he can be seen leaping high off the ground and punching the air with jubilation.

While the lawnmower stands idle next to him, the gardener’s impressive jump sees his legs tucked under him.

One arm is reached straight up and the other bends behind him. His mouth is wide open in the excitement of the acrobatic move.

It’s unclear what the man is so euphoric about. Perhaps he did in fact just receive some good news or perhaps he really does get a thrill out of mowing the lawn.

However, the more likely explanation is that the gardener planned the jubilant caper.

It’s probable that he saw the Google car coming, and, keen to be immortalised on the mapping service, decided to bound into the air for the perfectly-timed jump.

The image was snapped in Massachusetts, USA in August 2012.

This is far from the first time people have leapt into humorous positions in order to be snapped by the Google camera.

On one occasion the Google car captured at first glance what appears to be a grisly murder

The seemingly tragic scene involves three builders at work on a suburban road.

A man in a blue T-shirt can be seen lying on the floor spread-eagled as another builder stands over him wielding a construction tool.

To all intents and purposes, it looks as though the man in the blue T-shirt has been felled by his colleague.

A third man looks on, an apparent witness to the incident.

However, on closer inspection, it becomes clear that the scene has been set up by the three pranksters.

The third man is looking at the Google car as it approaches and seems to be leaning far too casually on his tool to really be a witness to a murder.

What’s more, there is no sign of injury on the man in the blue shirt in the slightest.

The stance of the apparent ‘murderer’ is also rather posed and melodramatic.

Clearly, the trio saw the Google car approaching and decided to have some fun with the situation.
