Google Maps Street View has captured an embarrassing error on a road in LA, California, USA. The Google cameras have shot a junction in central Los Angeles on a sunny day. Everything looks normal enough at first glance – until the viewer looks at the building on one of the street corners. The one-storey premise is fairly unappealing and clearly closed up during the day time.
Above the door is a large sign where the spot promises “cocktails” in capital letters.
But the words above this declaration are rather more embarrassing for the building’s owners.
The place describes itself as a “Nigth Club” in a terrible spelling mistake rather than the correct “Night Club”.
To make matters worse, at the top of the sign, it seems to say “Welcome California” – only the “l” of California is completely missing.
The spelling mistake of “Nigth” is so glaringly obvious once it’s spotted that it seems unbelievable that the sign wasn’t altered straight away.
However, it would seem that changing the spelling error was not a priority – and the sign remained.
One can only imagine the entertaining scene which would have likely ensued when the sign was first unveiled and the gaffe noticed. Or perhaps it was never spotted?
Unfortunately, the Google Maps user is simply left to wonder at what happened as no other clues about the place are apparent.
Often on Street View, it’s people themselves who are caught in the middle of embarrassing moments.
For instance, on one occasion a man in Mexico on Google Maps was photographed as he urinated against a wall.
The man seems to have a sheepish expression as though he is well aware of how mortifying what he is doing is.
His modesty is protected however as he remains fully clothed and is covering himself up with his hands.
Luckily for him, while the cars and their occupants can see who is, Google has blurred out his face so he can’t be identified.
One boy was likely left red-faced when the Google Maps Street View car in Chile passed just as he fell off his bike.
The Google cameras have managed to time it perfectly as he is captured just as he is falling off his bike. The unfortunate child’s leg and arm are in the air as he is hurled to the ground.
One assumes the bike had a part to play in the accident as it has fallen to one side next to the boy.
