Now, the search giant's panoramic mapping tool has taken some toys on vacation.
Tom Jenkins, the co-founder and creative director of the UK-based production company The Theory, has created a stop-motion video depicting toys going on a Google Street View adventure.
The short is explained on The Theory's Vimeo page:
A lonely desk toy longs for escape from the dark confines of the office, so he takes a cross country road trip to the Pacific Coast in the only way he can – using a toy car and Google Maps Street View.
Watch as the toy, assisted by the persistent clicking of one of his friends, makes his way from the Brooklyn Bridge to the Pacific Coast.
According to The Theory's Vimeo page, Jenkins produced, animated, filmed, lit and edited the short. He didn't use any screen replacements for the animated imagery, and notes that the music is from Cinematic Orchestra.
