Google Ghost View

Oh, now this is interesting.
Andy links to an interior Street View-style panorama being featured on Google Offers. [Which is also interesting, but.]
But when you step outside into Street View’s street view, this is what you see:
It looks like an enhancement of the way Google deals with obstructions by stitching differently timed images together in their panos. You can imagine that, as Google populates its image database, it will depopulate its published images, erasing more and more of the visual information it deems extraneous or obstructive.
This Google ghost bus will look novel, until it becomes the norm, and then it, too, will be refined out of existence.
