Google Maps - Has Been Rickrolled!

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:

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.)

...Editor’s note: The Rickroll video was blocked from YouTube for 24 hours, but now it’s back. We’re contacting YouTube for an explanation.

“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.
