Viking frogmen chase Street View spymobile
Google enjoys a traditional Norwegian welcome
Last weekend saw the launch of Google's privacy-busting Street View in Norway, and it didn't take long for locals to spot a traditional Viking welcome for the Great Satan of Mountain View's spymobile on the streets of Bergen:
Luckily for the Google operative, he was able to outrun the belligerent, rubber-clad locals and make good his escape:
Good stuff. This entertaining spectacle has prompted Norwegian paper Aftenposten to not unreasonably ask "Who's chasing Google with fish spears?" ®
I did not know what to expect from the title to this article. I was not disappointed. Thank you El Reg for stellar coverage of this epic event.
I want to move to Norway!
Compared to these nutters, I look sane. And really, in a country where people can do this, how are you *not* going to have a good time?
Did they know it was coming?
One has to wonder whether they knew the Google car was coming or whether it's common for Norwegians to sit in deck chairs in the middle of the street like that.
