Boom Headshot! Google Takes Out Google Maps FPS

Earlier this week, what started as a stunt by Swedish ad agency, Poolside Worldwide, has come to an end. The FPS “Google Shoot View” in question wasn’t on any console, but was in your web browsers. Poolside took the Google Maps we’re so used to and threw an automatic rifle into the mix. Essentially you could walk down streets anywhere in the world and pop off a few rounds. Well the big G, didn’t really take too lightly to this, and before things could get out of hand took down the site. So who is really the bad guy here? Poolside for pulling the stunt, or Google for overacting? Let us know in the comments below.
