But with such unfettered access to the comings and goings of modern life, they also inevitably capture the more light-hearted, quirky and heroic moments of the day.

This has been seized upon by Coca-Cola, which has compiled a montage of CCTV footage from around the globe for a new advert.

Clips include a couple stealing a kisson a park bench, a man dad-dancing to buskers and an apparent mugging which turns out to be a guy jumping onto the back of an unwitting friend.

They also show heart-warming honesty in a man who finds what appears to be a purse or phone on the pavement and immediately hands it to the woman who dropped it.

A worker playing a practical joke on a fellow employee in the office by dumping him into a box and a man who comes out of nowhere to help put out a car fire are other fascinating moments.
