GOOGLE MAPS Street View is used all around the world by users to navigate from their front doors to some of Earth’s greatest and most impressive sights. But sometimes the tool spots some rather strange occurrences from above, which may be the case here.
Google Maps Street View is used by people across the planet to go from their front door to their favourite cafe. Some people even use the tool to navigate around foreign countries when they go abroad. But for some people who can’t travel abroad, the tool is used for other purposes.
It also enables people to feel as though they’re walking the streets of another country or city from their living room.
But sometimes the tool is used by people to spot strange occurrences.
There is even a cluster of houses nearby.
But as you zoom in, it becomes more clear that someone has painted a huge sign on some concrete next to a river.
It becomes clear that the sign is an emoji shrugging made out of punctuation such as dashes, brackets and speech marks.
The emoji is sometimes used by people on social media.
The strange sight was spotted by a Reddit user who captioned it: “¯\_(ツ)_/¯”.
The post was quickly inundated with masses of comments from intrigued users.
One user explained what it meant: “It’s the Japanese Katakana character ツ (pronounced ‘tsu’).”
Another said: “I’m still sad I don’t know how to [do] the middle smiley face.”#emoji #google maps
