Mix-A-Lot's Posse on Google Maps

Posse on Broadway

Google Maps user Adam Cohn has created a Google My Map to track the locations in the Sir-Mix-A-Lot track 'Posse on Broadway'. The map shows the Seattle locations that the posse visit in the song.

I thought it would be kind of cool to use the YouTube API alongside the Google Maps API to produce an animated map that would work in tandem with the song. My animated version is here. Unfortunately there is a bug in the map that stops uploading the locations after 2.30. I can't find the bug but I'm sure someone who's a lot brighter than me will be able to find it and point it out in the comments!
