Google Maps’ 8 bit April Fools Joke

As an April Fools Day joke, Google ‘released a test version’ of 8 bit Google Maps for Nintendo NES.  The video is pretty funny (link). 

In typical Google fashion, the thing really works (on a PC, though – not a Nintendo).  Here’s a version showing directions from work (wow, the Chicago River is really wide!) and the 8 bit streetview shot of the building where I work.
