Get out your phone and open Google Maps!
Look! You can press on a little button that looks like Ms. Pac-Man and play, well, Ms. Pac-Man!
Thank Google for this updated version of their 2015 April Fools’ Day prank, which transports Android users to a random location but does allow iPhone and desktop users to pick one. (Can you blame them for reusing an old idea when last year’s Google prank went so badly?)
Central figures in news media took notice of this Friday afternoon fun, likely to their bosses’ dismay.
!!!!! Open Google Maps on your phone.
