30 Disturbing Things Found on Google Street View


From hovering UFOs, to naked men in trunks, to proof of the existence of angels, we count 30 weird, creepy and downright disturbing things picked up by Google lenses!


30This bird’s eye image shows the rooftop of Peabody Place Entertainment and Retail Centre in Memphis, Tennessee. The creepy thing about it is someone’s taken the time to spray paint ‘Come Downtown and Play’ in an area where almost no one will see it. The invitation seems friendly enough, but I don’t wanna accept it …


  • 29bThis photo was taken in France in August 2008. It shows a strange, dark alien figure lurking on an apartment balcony. The image went viral as a creepypasta, and has been hotly debated by paranormal enthusiasts.

  • In all likelihood it’s a mannequin or some sort of strange voodoo statue, but the weird thing is that, upon reviewing it, the Google Street View team decided to blur it, as if there was something about it that needed hiding …


  • 28This image shows a couple of military guys seemingly stopping a driver from proceeding while, in the distance, there’s a strange black wispy thing in the sky. Are they guarding some government secret?

  • The whole thing looks like some screen grab from an alien invasion movie.


  • 27These two images are before-and-after shots. In one image, the Google Street View car captures a healthy-looking donkey just chilling on the side of the road, possibly waiting for someone to enlist him as their noble steed. In the second image, the donkey is sprawled out on the road looking kind of … well, dead.

  • The public assumed the Google car had run it over, and Google rushed to clear the rumour. Apparently, the photos were taken in reverse. The donkey was first taking a nice dirt bath, then sprang up when the Google car approached.

  • So there you have it: no donkeys were harmed in the making of this video.


26This photo, taken in Chile in January 2012, shows what looks like a group of disembodied, possibly mummified corpses spilling out of dumpsters. But on closer inspection you can see they’re just creepy horror movie-esque mannequins. Phew! Kind of looks like a deleted scene from the Silent Hill movies.


25In this Google Earth image we see a strange, seemingly glowing pattern in the middle of a Chinese desert. Either these are alien markings or chicken scratch from some fifty-foot-tall rooster. Either way, it’s not good. Not good at all.


  • 24This disturbing image depicts what looks like a couple of people dragging a body along a blood-soaked pier. The supposed crime took place at a dock in Almere, Netherlands, and police were immediately notified.

  • After intense scrutiny, the Reddit community that discovered it determined this wasn’t a crime scene at all; it was just an innocent outing with man’s best friend. What appeared to be a body and bloody trail was actually just a wet pooch that had streaked some water behind him.


23This eerie 2011 image shows an old man taking a stroll – and somehow bending the fabric of time and space, appearing in two places at once. Fortunately, it was just an error in the Google Street view that showed him at two different points in his journey. There’s no glitch in the Matrix.


22Immortalised in this image is a dehydrated – and possibly ill or hurt – cow dragging itself across a two-lane highway in a dilapidated area of town. This one’s on the sadder side of disturbing. Hopefully she’s okay. No cow crossing the road jokes. That would be inappropriate.


  • 21This picture shows a giant pink bunny lying in a field somewhere in hilly North Italy. As you can see, the giant animal is bigger than a house.

  • It’s not some science experiment gone wrong; it’s an elaborate art project conceived by a Vienna art collective. The bunny is made entirely of fabric and straw and hikers are encouraged to climb all over it as they pass on their journeys.
