Watching stupid tourists on this Abbey Road cam is hilarious

It's one of the world's most iconic images: The Beatles walking across Abbey Road. 

And every day, fans flock to the ordinary London street -- much to the chagrin of local motorists -- to recreate the shot for Facebook, or Instagram, or whatever new site people use to annoyingly humblebrag about their trips these days. 

Well, there's a live webcam anchored above the crossing that actually takes the famous picture for them, at least from a distance. And, turns out, it's pretty fun to watch.

No seriously, turn it on. If it's a busy afternoon, you'll see hordes of idiots frantically darting across the street, stopping traffic, almost getting hit by those fun double-decker busses, all in the name of capturing the perfect tourist pose.

As for the idiots? Well, they can visit the site, find their Beatles moment, and, of course, share it on social media. All while the rest of laugh at how spatially unaware and ridiculous they look. 

Now, how about one of these cams by the Mona Lisa...?
