Anti Viral Marketing on Google Maps

Ten Grand is Buried There

Microsoft are running a campaign in Australia to try and get web users to download Internet Explorer 8. The website for the campaign tells anyone not using IE8 whilst browsing the site to 'get lost'. A lot of web users have taken exception to the campaign and it seems to be backfiring on Microsoft.

Today, a developer at Mozilla, who produce Firefox, has hit back. He grabbed the url TenGrandIsBuried and has added a Google Map to the site. When you zoom in on the map you will see a company logo (and it's not Microsoft's).
