I think that's one of the odder things I've seen. It was fun to spot the Google Earth cars in reflections, but that's just not as bizarre as this image to stumble across.
I wish it was a little easier to get it to zoom in correctly. Google Earth frequently zooms in a few feet too low, and having terrain on or off didn't seem to affect that. Still, it's an easy thing to move around a little bit once you're zoomed in with the placemark.
