Street View's Wayne and Garth: The most excellent truth

El Reg names spandex-clad Plymouth lads

Security for virtualized datacentres

The interwebs were abuzz last week with a most excellent sighting of Wayne's World stars Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar, rather improbably strutting their stuff in Plymouth:

The spot even made the UK nationals, but El Reg can now reveal the spandex-clad truth behind the mystery.

Local lad Richard Vivash got in touch to explain: "It's two friends of mine called Rich 'Pikey' Pearce (don't worry, he loves that name) and Jonah. They were dressed up for Pikey's birthday last year.

"Pikey is dressed as Garth, although he doesn't only dress as a wannabe rock star. He actually is a wannabe rock star in local spandex wearing, 80s hair metal band 'Sleaze' (he's the bass player)."

And here's the evidence, from Sleaze's Facebook presence:

Good stuff. As Wayne himself might put it: "Wow! What a totally amazing, excellent discovery!" ®
