These are a couple shots of mechanic Dan Thompson (the one playing dead) and a coworker who decided to fake a murder scene after spotting a Google Street View van approaching. They did a great job. Fast forward to a year later when some internet detective notified police believing they'd spotted an ACTUAL murder scene. Officers paid Dan a visit, who was still very much alive and well, and everybody had a laugh about it. Well, except the would-be internet sleuth, who was probably expecting a reward or a key to the city or something. Better luck next time, Sherlock.
Mr Thompson told the BBC Scotland news website: "By complete fluke I saw the Google car coming along the road but it had to loop the block so I had one minute to rush back inside the garage and set up the murder scene.
"There are pictures of men on Google flashing their bums but we thought we would be more classy.
"We had forgotten about it when the police arrived a year later and we apologised for wasting police time. They found it funny."
I love how they thought about flashing their asses but then decided to make it more classy. Because what's classier than a murder scene? Nothing that I can think of. Back me up, Colonel Mustard! "It was Mrs. Peacock in the study with the candlestick." Wait -- she killed somebody?! "Not exactly." Then what happened? "I walked in on her and Professor Plum getting freaky." But what's that have to do with the candlestick? "It was dangling from his keister." Oh my!
Keep going for two more shots of the before and after. Check out the scene for yourself HERE.
Thanks to Liam, who has every intention of making a funny face when the Google Street View car rolls by. Wow, way to dream big.
