Vauxhall Fights Car Photobombing with Camouflage Nets

For years, visitors have flocked to the English countryside to witness the quaint village of Bibury and its line of 17th century cottages on Arlington Row. The picturesque scene is highlighted on the inside of the British passport and is regarded as one of the most photographed streets in the country. But there's a problem.  According to the BBC, one 82-year old resident's bright yellow Vauxhall Corsa is photobombing every picture attempt in the iconic setting, and generating some extensive dislike online. Vauxhall heard about the issue, and was understandably highly concerned, so the automaker released a brand new product to mask those pesky colorful Corsa hatchbacks – camouflage nets.

To that extent, Vauxhall's aftersales director Andy Robson advises, “Drivers can locate their vehicle using their remote fob to operate the lights.” Thank goodness, we already can't see this one. But why stop there? If it works for Bibury, it could work for Downton Abbey. Now Hugh Bonneville and the rest of the cast can rip around in Lamborghini supercars, and the viewer at home will never even know!
