lmfao what's funny, is if you move the camera view further up the street...the pliers go full size and move 2 doors down it seems :snicker:

It's like V. :shock:

I, for one, welcome our giant flying plier overlords.

How do you even DO that? And how did you FIND it?

So cool! One wonders what other tools might next smite the British - perhaps a Mikita?

I didn't find it, I just saw it on another web forum.

I imagine that someone accidentally left a pair of pliers sitting on the top lens of the camera on top of the google maps camera van. So when the different angle shots got composited together, you get the giant flying pliers.

This is what one of those vans look like (the black thing on the roof is the camera unit):

I can't tell if that makes it funnier or disappointing!
