You're probably quite familiar with Google Street View, the Google Maps feature that lets you virtually journey through streets around the world. What you might not realise is that Google Street View contains some strange, funny and utterly brilliant sights, all captured by Google's Street View cars as they drove around capturing the photographs used in Street View.

Here, we bring you 15 of the best Google Street View sights, from a lightning strike and a rainbow to a field full of scarecrows and the happiest murderer we've ever seen. We've also thrown in some pretty awesome bonus Easter eggs, including a stroll through the magical Diagon Alley and a visit to Dr Who's Tardis. We've left out the bums, but trust us, there are hundreds of them on Google Street View. Thankfully, Google has gone to the trouble of blurring them out so we don't have to see them in detail!
Sadly, Google has also blurred out some of the old, classic Google Street View hoaxes and staged photos, including one that apparently showed a baby being born on the street (it was confirmed as a fake) and a pair of Final Fantasy warriors battling with swords in Pittsburgh.
Here are 15 that Google hasn't blurred out (yet).
This guy seems to be all over Google Street View. Here he is walking along in Italy. (Click photos to enlarge)
2. Lightning strike
This incredible photo of a lightning strike in Romania can be found in Google Street View.
3. Happy murderer
This pair of pranksters faked a murder in Edinburgh. His happy face was a bit of a giveaway but we think it's a great effort!
4. Stunning painting
This brilliant artist was captured finishingoff his latest piece in London's Hyde Park.
5. Happy couple
This couple were captured riding in a very pink horse and carriage on their wedding day.
6. Drunk man
We couldn't help but laugh at the expense of this man passed out on a bench. We're assuming he is drunk from the can seen next to him and the awkward position of his body!
A full rainbow was captured on Google Street View near Dartmoor National Park here in the UK.
8. Yoga lady
Another image that gave us a chuckle is of this lady doing some yoga on the beautiful Whistable coast. Not something you see every day on Google Street View.
The Google Street View car driver is captured giving the camera a clean on the Isle of Man.
10. Highland accident
It looks like it's going to be tricky to get this car out from this ditch up in Scotland.
11. Penguin riding a Penny Farthing
Among our favourites and definitely one of the strangest Google Street Views we've seen is this Penguin riding on the back of a Penny Farthing bike.
12. Scarecrow field
This one gave us a bit of a fright, as it looks like a field filled with lots of creepy people. It's actually lots of creepy scarecrows instead. Strange!
13. Diagon Alley
Harry Potter fans can take a trip through Diagon Alley on Google Street View, thanks to photos captured of the Harry Potter Studio Tour at Leavesdon.
14. Orange men
We're not sure what these two are up to but it's definitely strange!
15. The Tardis
Take a look inside Dr Who's Tardis by visiting the famous police box near Earls Court in London on Google Street View.
