Abbey Road Web Cam 2012-01-08 06:49:06 Reply

This is a web cam that for 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, monitors the famous cross walk featured on the Beatles album Abbey Road.

Watch as assholes nearly get hit by constantly walking in front of traffic trying to get pictures. Not just once, but over and over again, I swear they NEVER STOP. I've been watching for like 30 minutes, and already I've seen almost several people nearly get hit or cause a car accident. The naive tourists don't realize that the British are very busy people!

I wonder how many accidents happen here

It's insane what people will go through to recreate an album cover.

It's a zebra crossing where cars must stop if pedestrians are crossing or wanting to cross.

Yeah, I know they are SUPPOSED to stop. But I can imagine some poor local trying to get to work on time might be tempted to run over a stubborn tourist.

I actually laughed at the way the people just run in the middle of the road and try to quickly take a photo and get out of the way !

That is superbly entertaining. The idiocy of the general public never fails to make me laugh, or sometimes smack my forehead.

The Beatles were good, but I don't see why people keep trying to recreate that album cover. I bet Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr watch that live webcam sometimes and wonder why people just don't get their autographs.
I watched that webcam for like 2 minutes and seriously, those tourists had no clue. While walking, this one woman was flailing her arms back and forth so much that she looked like a little kid. Never did I see them do it right either. You need four people to complete a good Abbey Road picture. With just yourself and one tourist friend, that's not going to look good or professional.

Are you being serious? What the hell is wrong with you! You DO realize that the road is in ENGLAND like the OP says and that Abbey Road does not sound American and nor do the cars and environment in the said location?

ARE YOU ACTUALLY BEING SERIOUS? I think you have major problems dude and you need to get an education before you open your mouth

Every time a group of tourists recreate that cover (been watching this for the last 10 minutes, and three groups have done it) originality dies a little.

Download revolver, listen to it, then come back to me.
It is the definitive album of the most popular band of a time, runs like an hour, why not?

I think we need to get some users from the UK to work their way down there and walk across.

Holding signs with their username on it of course
