Google Maps meets Lost (the video)

Watch Lost? The Smoke Monster is really Google's Street View cameras. That doesn't explain what happened to Mr. Echo, though, does it?

Comedy troupe The Vacationeers has a new video parodying Google Maps and its Street View feature. Shortly after the introduction of Street View, privacy concerns were raised by several groups regarding the amount of zooming and the capturing of license plate numbers, but nobody's come close to comparing it to a formidable and mysterious opponent the likes of the smoke monster on J.J. Abrams' Lost.

I desperately hope this becomes a series.
