In 2008, The Vacationeers produced a series of short films about Google's never-ending list of new products and projects. It appeared that each of these new toys had a dark side.
Part One: Google Maps
Google Street View promised to be creepy and intrusive. It has proven to be so in real life as well.
Part Two: Google Moon
Google Sky promised to be "Google Maps for the universe." They found the moon.
Part Three: Google My Maps
Maybe we shouldn't get all that personal with Google.
Part Four: Google SMS
Texting to Google gets all kinds of information, plus a bit of unsolicited advice.
Part Five: Google Mobile
Google is not the only thing that's strangely mobile!
Then in 2009, Google hired the Vacationeers to do more videos promoting their study tips page. They aren't as funny as the original series, but they're still worth a look.
Part One: Googling Yourself
You'll go blind doing that!
Part Two: Google Cram
This is wonderfully useful, but alas, it hasn't yet launched.
Part Three: Maximum Strength Google
Cranial Flatulation. Sounds painful.
