'Horse Boy' On Google Street View Shrouded In Mystery (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Google Street View frequently captures strange sights: people urinating in public, a pitchfork-wielding duo dressed in scuba gear, or even Waldo from "Where's Waldo?"

An enigmatic character, dubbed "Horse-Boy," has appeared on Google Street View in Aberdeen, Scotland, and has generated considerable buzz and speculation by Internet users the world over. The man can be seen standing against a wall in a purple shirt and brownish pants wearing a large horse mask.

The BBC writes, "Dozens of BBC news website users have e-mailed from across Europe to say they know who horse boy is." Some have even sent in photos of the mysterious "Horse-Boy."

One Huffington Post reader emailed to point out that "Horse-Boy" has his own YouTube channel, with videos showing "Horse-Boy" (aka "The Human Horse") dancing to Soulja Boy's "Crank That" and "The Birdie Song," among other clips.
