Google Maps Anomalies: The Creepy Tiki Troll of Nancy, France

A couple years ago, someone noticed something odd on Google Street View near some apartments in Nancy, France. A tall, corpse-like humanoid with scraggly hair and large, white eyes.

A goblin? A troll? A monster? Well, no. Turns out it’s a tiki statue…or something. But that’s about as strange as anything else, if you ask me.

Not long after it was found, though, the image became blurred. If you try to find it now, all you’ll see is a rectangular blur (click the link to check it out). Why? I don’t know. I suppose tiki statues like their privacy just as much as anyone else.

    It is either, currently:
    1. Not there
    2. Still there
    1: two solutions:
    1. it is a demon which appeared in the photograph
    2. it is a physical statue (or a person in a costume), which was placed there, and has since been removed; if we can find the person responsible for its appearance, we will have solved the mystery.
    2: one solution:
    1. It is a statue: once again, the person responsible should be found and interviewed.
    In either case, we need to find a person who lives in France (or go there ourselves) to see whether it’s still there, and conduct further investigation in that location.

    Are you seriously this unfamiliar with public relations and marketing? Google blurred it out after it was brought to the world’s attention because they recognise there’s a strong possibility a handful of idiots will complain that it upset them/their children and blame them for it.
