updated-waldo-blog-full-flow

It’s that time again!

April 1st usually marks the day when the Internet collectively let’s it’s hair down and has some fun by creating prank sites and products, to honor April Fool’s Day.

Google, wich has a reputation for not letting this day pass quietly (e.g Express Parachute Delivery), has brought the eponymous, lost hero of “Where’s Waldo”  to Google Maps.

To Find Waldo in Google Maps:

  1. Launch Maps, you’ll see Waldo waving at you.
  2. Tap Waldo then tap Play.

Enjoy,  be on the lookout for too good funny to be true offering from the likes of AirBNB, Amazon, and Subway.

Cheers!
