Google Street View Becomes Google Bag View in Alaska

Illustration for article titled Google Street View Becomes Google Bag View in Alaska

One of the occupational hazards of Google Street View is, I guess, having the camera obscured by something. It could be a pterodactyl, perhaps, flying low for a closer view, it could be a giant Monty Python-style animated brogue homing in on the car as if it were a roach ripe for the squishing. Or it could be a plastic bag. One minute it's dancing around, American Beauty-style, the next it's spread-eagled over the camera rather like an over-amorous spinster at a barn dance. This is what Minnie Street in Fairbanks, Alaska, looks like, according to Google Street View. [Google Maps via Google Sightseeing]
