Guerrilla marketing on Google Maps

I tried this idea some time ago, but because of the speed with which pictures take to be approved for use on Google Maps (very slowly) I forgot about it, until now.

About a year ago I was running a long term test of a Volvo XC60 for BusinessCar magazine.

Given that I seemed to be all over the country in the car I thought it would be fun to post images of the car in various locations on Google Maps.

I’m surprised that a brand hasn’t used the idea yet (correct me if I’m wrong on this), or maybe they have, but the Google police have removed the pictures.

Anyway, here’s the tour:

Volvo XC60 outside the BusinessCar office in Foots Cray, Kent, UK

Volvo XC60 at BusinessCar office

Volvo XC60 outside Manheim Auctions in Coventry, UK

Volvo XC60 outside Cliveden House, Taplow, Berkshire, UK

Anyone else done anything similar?
