You may have seen those nondescript white vans with cameras on top driving around your city. Thankfully they’re not creepy dudes riding around trying to get pictures of people doing things in private. It’s actually just Google driving around and they just happen to get pictures of people doing things in private. Oh yeah, and they put that on the internet and link it to your address.
It seems the latest victim is Wayne Coyne, the lead singer of the Flaming Lips. Google caught him in a bathtub in the backyard of his Oklahoma City home. I know, if I had a nickel every time I heard that. It seems that Wayne was filming a video for the band’s MySpace page among other things. If you know the Flaming Lips at all, you know Wayne won’t be too worried his privacy was invaded in this instance. If you don’t know Wayne and the Lips, watch the video below and you’ll see what I mean(VERY NSFW!! Also, if the embed isn’t working, check it here).
On a related note, Google got me a few years ago. My old car was captured in front of my prior residence. When will Google just let me live my life?!?!?!
