Google car – arse

Damn – walking along the Science Park road I got passed by the Google Maps street view car – at least I wasn’t scratching my arse or picking my nose at the time – just talking on the phone.

Anyway, in a petty act of revenge here is MY photo of them photographing me photographing them photographing me and so on…

  1. Tell The Register – they can add it to the map of all the others http://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/07/15/google_spycar_map/

    We never let people photograph us without permission. The last guy who tried that was stripped naked and sent back to camp with his dick in his hand.

  4. Gorilla – a bit harsh methinks.

    Gavin – I did ponder that but decided not to – you don’t want to be immortalised as a bit of an idiot. Or maybe you do. Up to you.

    I saw one of these this morning and didn’t know what the hell it was. I assumed it was some students filming a documentary but your blog has put me right.
    Does this mean i’ll be forever immortalised on Google maps?

  8. scientific recruitment

    If that’s what they have to do for every street in the uk it’s going to take years before the project is complete.

  9. it may be a shot in the dark here but I suspect that there may be more than one car…

    or perhaps that’s just crazy talk.

    I saw it! Was walking down to my local corner shop in Leamington when I just happened to look up and see the same car driving towards me. Well, might not have been the exact same one but it was certainly a black Astra with the camera mast on the roof. I struck an appropriate pose as it went past so here’s hoping I get immortalised on Google Maps!

  11. Perhaps we should track it and try and arrange a flash mob event for the benefit of Humanity. Perhaps paint End War across our t-shirts or something. Maybe get a medieval peasant to walk in front – something unusual.
