Google Street view spots Waldo buying an iPhone

Where’s Waldo? Apparently he’s at a UK 02 store buying an iPhone!

That’s right, there’s Waldo outside the O2 store at 77 Putney High St Wandsworth, London SW15, UK, where he is obviously about to buy himself an iPhone to take advantage of its GPS capabilities.

Thanks to faithful Macenstein reader Jonathan for the tip!

    Honest question: why is he called “Waldo” in Yankee land and not “Wally” like he’s called everywhere else? Is “Wally” a cuss word to you or something?

    This has been around for ages, it turns out it was a Easter egg by the UK Google Street View team.

    Originally in 1987, he was Wally when invented by Martin Handford in the UK, the name change was adapted to make him morelovable in the 28 different countries he’s been released in.
