A Dutch blogger explored Norilsk and saw coloured people. He wanted to buy such a monochrome suit.
Then he found someone already had researched the mystery. See the Youtube video at the bottom:

Is there any explanation for who the people are or what they are doing? It seems very mysterious.

The man narrating the video has a very sexy accent, by the way. :oops: :shy:

They are referred to as the "Google Men" but it's not clear whether their Street View colour-spotting game was an official Google promotion or some sort of students' lark.

WTF! How did it jump so high?
Kit Williams is back to his old tricks, I'll bet!

OK... here's an earlier view. The car must have knocked the hare flying:

It get weirder, if you click farther along the roads you can see it in other frames. Also the frame you showed has it jumping in the opposite direction from my initial post.

Remains of missing man found on Google Earth after 20 years after submerged car spotted in lake


The remains of a man who went missing more than two decades ago have been found after his car was spotted on Google Earth submerged in a lake.


William Earl Moldt, 40, disappeared after he set out to drive home from a nightclub on Nov 7, 1997 in Lantana, Florida.

A property surveyor looking at Google Earth spotted the car on August 28 this year. Palm Beach County sheriff's deputies went to look at the vehicle, finding it was heavily calcified and had been there for a long time.

When they pulled it out they found skeletal remains inside. A coroner has now confirmed that they belonged to Mr Moldt.

The car had been driven into a man-made lake on a housing estate, which was under construction at the time he vanished.
