The question on lips across the techi-world this morning has to be “Who is horse-boy?”
This image was captured by a Street View car driving through Aberdeen’s Hardgate area. In the absence of anybody claiming any crime reports featuring a horse-disguised miscreant, the identity of the horsey chap remains a mystery.
Millions of Google Street View users have seen the image of the man, dressed in black trousers, a purple shirt and a brown and white horse’s head.
Equally his existence could be a Google joke. The BBC reports horse-boy features in other parts of Google’s street view service.
