Another Video on Google’s Evils: Creepy Ice Cream Man Edition - Digits - WSJ

Sign of the times

Are anti-Google videos becoming some sort of weird cottage industry?

The Journal’s Amir Efrati reported just a couple of weeks ago on a video about the “evil” side of Google. And now a group called Consumer Watchdog has a video that makes fun of Google CEO Eric Schmidt’s views on privacy. Part of the video is being used in a 15-second ad on a giant screen in Times Square too. (And these are all posted on on Google’s YouTube. Oh, the irony.)

In the video, Schmidt is portrayed as an ice cream man who hands out “free” ice cream to kids — while giving them full-body scans and collecting their secrets. (In Digits’ view, his ice cream man might rank right up there with clowns in terms of creepiness.) .
