Zebra Crossing Abbey Road – and social scripts

Abbeyroad
This is absolutely fabulous and laugh out loud funny. Abbey Road studios have set up a webcam pointed at the zebra crossing to watch for the real time antics of tourists emulating that so famous record cover. It really works. I saw my first pose within 10 seconds of visiting the webcam. If you didn't know about the cover how would you interpret this bizarre human behaviour. If it was any other zebra crossing then it would make no sense at all. Social copying is central to how we learn. This is a particularly visible and humorous example of it.
