The Google Maps Discovery will Take You to A Very Nostalgic Place on the Internet

There are some places you know even if you don’t know them.

You could probably spot an image even if you’ve never been to the top of the Empire State Building – I haven’t – and recognize it. You almost have to have an idea of what the place looks like if you’ve seen a lot of scenes in movies and TV shows set there.

If you’ve been on the internet for a while, then this video on Twitter from @Ballymoran will take you somewhere very recognizable. It’s a brilliant bit of Google Maps fun. Ominous music plays as you get closer, closer, closer. You’re expecting something spooky or weird. The ultimate destination, well, just watch.

You’re damn right, that was a rickroll in 2022. Why the hell not?

It’s neat to see where the classic Rick Astley video for “Never Gonna Give You Up” was filmed in real life despite old internet jokes. We’ve all been staring at those brick arches unknowingly for years. Now we know they’re at 150 Freston Road in London.

That’s the curious magic of Google Maps. The Google Earth and Street View lets you, in an instant, drop in on any place in the world. Unsuspecting, it’s all there, frozen in time. It’s a feat of ubiquity from the tech giant that we can now get rickrolled by a map.
