Google Maps Street View is often used by those who do not have the luxury of flying all around the world to view some of the wonders of the world. The Great Wall of China, the pyramids and the Taj Mahal can all be viewed on Google Maps Street View from the comfort of your home.
It’s also handy for those who don’t want to leave the confines of their homes but want to know what other countries look like.
But sometimes, the huge Street View lens can capture some rather embarrassing scenes.
From dogs driving cars, to ghostly scenes that could perhaps prove the afterlife exists, Google Maps has it all.
Sometimes Street View captures rude gestures too which are often spotted by eagle-eyed users of the navigation tool.

These nifty users often then share their findings on social media which then can go viral overnight.
The images can then catapult the user or the person in the picture to their five minutes of fame.
And this could be the case for one such man who was spotted in a rather embarrassing move in France.
The scene unfolded in Versailles near Paris, France.
The man was spotted leaning forward against a closed glass door which is on the Avenue de Général de Gaulle by the train station.
The train station is very close to the infamous Versailles Palace.
The station is called the Gare de Versailles Château Rive Gauche.
From far away, the scene looks fairly normal with cars driving past the building on a main road.

It is not 100 percent clear whether he is, but it appears the man is urinating in the corner of the shuttered entrance.
The embarrassing move was spotted by a Reddit user. They posted the scene on the site with the caption, “Palace of Versailles – you have to go there!”
The man appears not to care that he is in the public eye or that he has been snapped by the Street View camera.
Currently, the Palace of Versailles is closed in accordance with the French government’s regulations on the coronavirus.
