Here’s How Car Maker Fiat Pranked Its Rival Using Google Maps

It’s time for a little levity.  (post continues below graphic).
Car makers Fiat and Volkswagen are competitors. Fiat saw an opportunity to play a creative prank on its rival. As the Daily Mail reported:

Fiats [sic] workers spotted the Google Street view car, which captures panoramic views of locations around the world with a roof camera, driving past its offices and quickly drove to Södertälje 45 minutes away to Volkswagen’s head office.

The effort paid off, as you can see above. Search ‘Volkswagen Group Sverige AB, Sodertalje, Sweden’ in Google Maps to see it for yourself.
