Gunnar And The Grizzly Boys, Country Band, Claim To Ambush Google Street View Vehicle (VIDEO)

When Gunnar and the Grizzly Boys posted their latest music video on Youtube, the country band claimed it had friends at Google who "bent the rules to make this video possible."

However, Reddit posters were quick to point out Gunnar and his Grizzly Boys could not actually have ambushed a Google Street View car.

The giveaway? Well, for starters, the band member's faces were not blurred out to protect their privacy in typical Google Street View fashion.

The next tip-off was the name of the Youtube account where the music video was posted: RobBlissCreative.

As one Reddit user notes, Rob Bliss is fairly well known for his involvement in viral marketing ideas. The Michigan native launched his own marketing company in November after splitting from Status Creative, a firm he created in 2011 with Jeff Barrett and Scott Erickson. While at Status Creative, Bliss helped create a popular lip-dub video of Don McLean's "American Pie" that involved the vast majority of residents from Grand Rapids, Mich.

So it's not far outside the realm of possibilities to think that Bliss could have had a hand in creating the country's band "Could Be Me" video.

CNET writer Chris Matyszczyk goes so far as to conclude that the band's insistence that it is protecting friends at Google "cannot possibly be fact."

"No one who works even as a contractor for Google would risk their job and unimpeachable reputation for a redneck country video," Matyszczyk writes.

Watch the video for yourself (above), and let us know in the comments (below) whether you think it's a fake.
