Image: Google Maps

Google Maps, as we all know, has a tendency to surface some pretty odd scenes. Trump Tower, too, contains many oddities. But do you know what happens when you combine the two? Fucking. Fucking happens.

Or at least that’s what a couple of images from the photo stream for Trump Tower on Google Maps suggest. One depicts two couples in the act of what definitely looks like coitus. Both couples are in the bathroom: one near the sink, and one near the stalls.

(NSFW warning: the photo below contains what appears to be boning.)

The user who posted the image, Yong Chen, is an artist, and his website includes a video that features similar scenes in the same bathroom. The project is called “Peeper,” and it’s described thusly: “The content of entire project is [concentrated] on pornography.” Sounds about right!

However, when reached by phone, Chen confirmed that—sadly—the stills were not, in fact, shot in Trump Tower. They were taken in Savannah, Georgia.

“The image I posted to Trump Tower looks more similar to what Trump Tower might look like, in my mind,” he told me. Originally, the stills were tagged in art galleries on Google Maps in August as a critique of gallery spaces. But, seeing a way to make a splashier point, Chen recently decided to tag them at Trump Tower—a space he described as a “hot spot.”

“[I’m interested in] how [people] project that connotation of that image onto Trump Tower, or Trump himself,” he said.

The bathroom orgy isn’t the only sexy photo, either. One Twitter user pointed out another shot of people boning in a spot tagged as Trump Tower. It, too, was posted by Yong Chen, and it’s another still from the “Peeper” project.

The coitus snaps, however, aren’t the only odd photos to show up in the photo stream. Among scenes of gilded bedrooms and fancy pillars, this shot of a Trump turd—which isn’t actually at Trump Tower, but in Lower Manhattan—also pops up:

Though it may seem like these shots are all part of some sort of quasi-organized digital protest, Chen insists that’s not the case. “I don’t think it’s a protest,” he said, adding that while people may view them that way, that’s not how he intended them. (Of course, slapping Trump’s name onto anything right now is inherently political, no matter how much “cultural commentary” is involved.)

Will Google take them all down? Probably. Are they going to stop the melted pile of Gak that is our president-elect from taking over the country? Probably not. But we all need something to cling to these days, and staged coitus is about all we have left.
