Google Maps is one of the applications used in the world. It keeps track of your location and destination, displays the distances between two points, the estimated time of arrival, as well as the traffic conditions prevailing on the various roads in a city or town.

But sometimes the app captures and shares images which can be a little hard to believe. And some of them have gone viral on social media in recent years.

Not too long ago, a Google Maps user spotted a man who appeared to be defecating in public. The unusual scene was filmed in the town of Roosendaal in the Netherlands. More recently, internet users have been baffled by some “light houses” on the app, prompting many to come up with bizarre alien theories.

A photo on Google Maps, which showed a man in a black robe holding a gun to another leaning against a vehicle, sparked debate and raised questions about gun violence.

But the so-called “heist” on Google Maps turned out to be a prank pulled by two friends with a glue gun.

Darren Honeyman and his colleague Dave Hutchinson were at work in Darlington when they decided to set the scene after spotting a Google van on a nearby street. The photo, which has now gone viral, shows Darren holding what appears to be a gun to Dave’s head.

At first glance and from a distance, the photo appears to be an attempted daytime robbery.

However, if you zoom in on the image you will notice that Darren is actually holding a glue gun to his colleague. After sharing the photo on Facebook, she quickly collected thousands of likes and comments.

“We were just at work and we pulled up around the corner and saw the Google Earth van pull up and I said ‘for once we’ll have a pose that we have defined’,” Darren said.

“The closest thing we had was the glue gun and ourselves, so we jumped up and posed just for a little fun,” he added.
