Google launched Street View today in the UK and Netherlands. Which has quickly brought up a whole load of furious email forwarding of friends spotting themselves going to lunch, people being sick, and i'm sure to be followed by a lot more dodgy stuff as in the American version.
Anyway so to celebrate this momentous occasion in blurring the lines of privacy and helping people with no sense of direction, i've gone looking for movie locations. I'm sure a commercial use will come along soon but this is more fun.
WITHNAIL AND I
The Mother Black Cap - The pub where Withnail and I run out of following the 'perfumed ponce' incident.
THE ITALIAN JOB
The Royal Lancaster - Where Charlie has his getting out of jail present.
Croaker's pad - highlighting the limits of Street View, Croaker's pad is up a road that's not available on Street View so you'll have to look down the road to see it (on the left).
Go to the Movie Locations site to find more.
Update: And yet more classics - Top Gear's Stig, man having a wee, Dave Gorman, man taking picture of Street View.
And some i found myself: Man breaking into (?) house, the diving angels in Piccadilly Circus,
