As far as humiliating shots on Google Street View go, this is surprisingly not the first taste of public humiliation that the Google Maps service has graced upon us. First, we saw the results of a car crashing into a pole, and now, we all get to point and laugh at this kid who happened to fall off his bike as the photos were being shot for the street view.
Is the kid hurt? Probably not anything physically permanent, but the humiliation of his fall might stay with him for a much longer period of time. We’d like to call this, “Google Street View FAIL!”, an ode to those who have been caught in the act of foolishness. — Andrew Dobrow
