Man caught making explicit hand gesture in ‘perfect moment’ on Google Maps

A pedestrian has been caught making a rude gesture on Google Maps Street View.

The man made the explicit signal with both of his hands in a busy street in Boston, Massachusetts in the US.

He appeared to be directing it at Google’s camera as it was driven down the road to capture the street.

Images show him stood still on the pavement calmly making the obscene hand sign while pedestrians walked past him, the Express reports.

He stood facing towards the road and looking directly into the camera’s lens while turning both of his hands up, with his fingers pointed in an explicit gesture.

The man wore a pair of blue jeans, brown shoes, a blue shirt and a khaki jumper pulled over the top.

But his identity has been concealed by Google Maps Street View’s facial blurring technology.

As part of its privacy policy, Google blurs all faces it detects on the Street View technology feature.

Photos also show crowds of passers-by making their way up and down the avenue.

The privacy policy posted on Google Maps' website says it aims to “blur identifiable faces”.

People can also request for their home, car or body to be blurred.

Google states: "Google takes a number of steps to protect the privacy of individuals when Street View imagery is published to Google Maps.

"We have developed cutting-edge face and license plate blurring technology that is designed to blur identifiable faces and license plates within Google-contributed imagery in Street View.

"If you see that your face or license plate requires additional blurring, or if you would like us to blur your entire house, car, or body, submit a request using the 'Report a problem' tool.”

Meanwhile, in Galicia, north west Spain, a man was captured on Google Maps pulling down his shorts to reveal his bare bum.

The bald, topless man dropped his pants as the Google car passed by on the road.

The image was taken in the summer of 2019 but recently went viral after it was shown on the TV show Land Rober Tunai Show.

Show presenter Roberto Villar even encouraged the bum's "owner", whose identity remains unknown, to come forward and contact the weekly programme by phone.
