French Ski Shop Photobombs Google Street View in Hilarious Fashion

Being an investigative journalist isn't always easy. So, when a semi-illicit snapshot of a steamy dressing room scene in a French ski shop started making its way through cyberspace, we knew he had to, uh, take a closer look. For journalism, of course. And what exactly did we find upon a closer examination?

We found that this particular ski shop has a sense of humor. Not only was the dressing room scene staged, but there are several funny scenes to be found as you virtually browse the store through Google Maps. Here's a look at the pic that grabbed our attention.

We have no idea how far the naughty dressing room inhabitants went to make this scene look authenticate, but we do know they weren't the only ones goofing around. Google Maps, for those who don't know, has a Business Photos feature in which "Trusted Photographers and Trusted Agencies" work with brick-and-mortar locations to schedule and shoot the inside of an establishment. Photo shoots are said to be "quick, non-disruptive, and personalized."

Here's a look at what else we found while browsing the ski shop:

That can't be safe, but it sure looks fun.

Ski Shop peace sign
And peace be with you. Wait, did you just move?

Ski Shop window
Just like Marty McFly used to do it, only with a skateboard.

Ski Shop door
Incoming!

Ski Shop creepy
Nope, not creepy at all.

Don't worry about that glass case at the bottom of the stairs, he's wearing a hat.

"And peace be with you. Wait, did you just move?" photo is not the photo bomb, that is an actual cutout... lol. The actual photo bomb is a series of 3 photos coming from out side where a skier is pulled into the shop, trips at the door then face plants on the floor.

His face being blurred leads me to think it's a person, not a cardboard cutout.

Not sure if your just stating that or backing up you claim. But if you go around to the end you can clearly see its a cutout , even if you go to the side. The cutout next to him is also blurred out. (don't take this as arguing, just trying to correct it)

The only snow we get in the Houston area is in the form of snow cones. And the only sking we do involves a boat and water. Had A/C on today to help dry the air a little. Wearable air
