What’s Going On Here?

Question: What would a Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) car be doing in Croydon, UK with a man fixed on its roof and a giant hand spanking him on the rear? Getting on Google Sightseeing of course!

Guy getting whipped!

According to GSS reader James Martin, this insane tableau is the brainchild of a man who was denied permission to install a pond in his garden by the local council. So, obviously, he went out and put a guy in the ready position on the roof of a foreign police car. Way to lash out friend!1

I wonder what his neighbours think? Better yet, where exactly did he think this pond would go?

I wonder what his neighbors think? Yard pond?

Although Google blurred out most of the car's distinguishing details, you can still see the car has LAPD markings (whether real or not nobody knows), and a website address on the back. Unfortunately, the website is no longer online so my attempts at picking up some more information this way were quickly, well, pummelled?2

Not LAPD anymore!

Wouldn't it be great if the hand slaps Mr. White Shirt across the rear every time the driver puts on the brakes?

Thanks again to James Martin for sending us the link!
