Mystery Man is Welcoming People to Idaho on Google Maps

Something weird is happening on Google Maps right now. When people enter Idaho, there’s a mysterious man that pops up on their phone and welcomes them. Seriously.

There’s a raging conversation about this happening on Idaho’s Reddit page right now. For reference, here’s what it looks like.

How weird is that? It’s a little man wearing a green coat, red Gilligan hat with what looks like 2 potatoes for hands. That’s not stereotypical at all.

As you might imagine, the Reddit conversation varies wildly from questions about why it wasn’t Napoleon Dynamite to random profanity.

Try it next time you leave (and hopefully come back) to Idaho. See if the little mystery man on your phone pops up and says hello.
