Spain has other wild festivals aside from the popular Running of the Bulls in San Fermin, and one of these is the La Tomatina. This event happens in the small village of Buñol. The festival involves the locals and tourists engaging in a massive battle using 150 tons of tomatoes as the only weapon. This doesn’t like the best day for Google Street View car to drive by, don’t you think? But somehow, it still did.

The plan was for the car to record the tomato-soaked streets after the battle was over, according to Google. But someone missed the memo, and the car ended having the tomato party of its life.

Sadly, the images never got recorded. The sauce that covered the car was only part of the problem. The car suffered heavy damages after people climbed over it and used it to gain advantage in the tomato war, according to a Redditor. Google Spain, in a statement to Gizmodo en Españolsaid they acknowledged the damages. They also are investigating to know the exact causes that led the car to drive on the streets even while the party was still ongoing.
