Quite extraordinary. Though I must admit that I wonder whether they are ALL entirely authentic ...
Whether or not they are "real", there is something peculiarly haunting about them.
Doubtless, a great source of album covers for the sort of bands that students like listening to.

Maybe #5 really is a truck driver. Or roadside assistance.

Regarding the "clones or teleporting" image, a few years back when Google Sreet View mapped Noway, a couple of people who knew one of the drivers of the Google car found out when it was going to be at a certain location, and were there waiting, dressed as frogmen:

The article humorously describes the last photo by saying, "On the western Rantakatu in Turku, a cyclist for his part greeted the photography car with an international hand signal." :-)

I don’t see any jump leads. She’s probably not affiliated with the RAC.
