    Is that real? How did it happen as it's inside the van? Bizarre.

    Hahaha! It's taken on the bike they use in populated/off road areas. Looks like they were loading/unloading it when it grabbed the pic. The GPS mapping device on the front of the bike looks interesting...

    I didn't know they used the bike version here in the UK - thought it was just cars.

    Yea, easier to manoeuvre in the big cities. I believe they are also doing areas where cars cannot go now, like cycle paths and large hill side walk routes.

    Even better one.

    Google Maps

    Go into the Krakatoa store (go left once to get in.)

    Take a look out the window and in the changing room

    It appears that the censorship [mentioned in that post] is no longer in force. However a mannequin in the same shop one step away from the 'amorous' couple:

    That's got to be a set up...go back one step and the curtain is hanging normally and there is no-one visible.

    The curtain has been wound round the pole to shorten it for the cheeky shot with the legs.

    They probably did a deal with Google so they could get more online attention...

    I'd agree, there's a few easter eggs around the store that are only there in their respective frames.
