Google and cinematic excellence don't typically go hand-in-hand, but one incredibly clever Tumblr has changed that.
On Google Street Scene, scenes from cult classics are reimagined as Google Street View shots. A specific film location is graffed onto the Google map, and then, presto: You've got a piece of film nostalgia for the Internet age.
“I got the idea after someone posted this very fake image on a message board,” blog creator Tre Baker told Entertainment Weekly. “We started talking about making fake street views, and I put up that Mystery Train one. That led to the Tumblr.”
As Motherboard points out, the blog looks relatively new, "with only a smattering of submissions." Here are our favorites so far:
Blue Velvet (1986)
Mystery Train (1989)
