    Pretty interesting idea, though he didn't get too much exposure from this; he got far more exposure from this article at TC than he could get via GSV.

    Interesting, but seriously how many people are going to look this up.
    Even then I didn't realize the sign was for a band.. just thought i was some random advertising.

    Guess he can point people to a screen shot of him on the side of the road :p.

    Hmmm pretty clever. At least he got some exposure out of it. This could have some potential, maybe market it similar to the "google map dead body" and make a site and story.

    Around September I accidentally came across Augmented Reality. Basically you hold up an iPhone with an app that lets you see things that are not really there. Or whatever it is attracts your attention when you want to take a picture.

    So I wasted two weeks fantasizing about geo tagging a giant animated loop gif of meatspin over my old High School.

    Haha on our last year of school we put weed killer on the grass on the main field, it said 'leavers 08'. Google took a snapshot and now its perm. on google maps and google earth.

    I think the only real exposure for this guy was to be promoting his band in a unique way, I doubt anyone that even comes across this guy accidentally even bothers to look it up.
