Google Maps Has Been Rickrolled

It's a rather amusing post.
Apparently they managed to get past the **AA Rickrolling ban...
I had a LOL where they write about Bletchley Park (the home of the UK's main codebreakers during WWII), being now on Street View:
Quote
The Street View trike has managed to penetrate where thousands of German spies couldn't and enabled Google Maps to show Street View from all around the Bletchley Park estate.
(Bletchley Park is where British cryptanalysts and mathematicians, such as Alan Turing, famously broke the German Enigma code.)

“Taking down a five-year-old video with tens of millions of views is strange enough, but it is far from clear why AVG Technologies—the people behind AVG Anti-Virus—would want to do so at all,” enigmax wrote.
