Halloween ’08

Friday, 31st October 2008 by

Here in the UK there’s a lot of dressing up that happens around Halloween, there isn’t anything like the kind of mania that seems to possess Americans with regards to dressing up their homes, gardens or anything else that gets in the way of the Halloween Money Machine!

When Street View first launched we posted about this huge Jack-o’-lantern spotted off U.S. Route 287 in Broomfield, Colorado.

Since then somebody found this house on Adams Street1 in the town of Easthampton, Massachusetts, which has been completely obscured by inflatable Halloween decorations, including a terrifying Tigger, whose frightening visage has been thankfully blurred by Google’s privacy software!

Achieving this level of terrification however, is still a simple matter of inflating some oversized cartoon characters. So you’ve got to take your hat off to whoever scrawled this looming Jack-o’-lantern right in the middle of Highway 51, Wisconsin!

What’s really frightening is that anyone thought that this was a good idea at some point in their drunken evening…

Thanks to Merlin and Virtual Globe Trotting.
