When the Google Street View car was spotted by Dan Thompson, a manager of a car repair shop in Edinburgh, and his mechanic Gary Kerry back in 2012, they decided to have a little fun by staging what has now become known as the 'street view murder.' Staging a 'killing' just for the cameras, they subsequently forgot about their practical joke until the police showed up a few months alter to investigate the street view murder.

Called in by a member of the public who caught sight of the gag, the police thankfully had a good laugh themselves after realizing the street view murder was staged. Of course, not all cops will be just as lenient if the act were to be repeated.
