Consumer Watchdog, an anti-Google group, invaded Times Square with a 540-square-foot video cartoon of Google CEO Eric Schmidt frightening children -- and me -- with threats of infiltrating their online lives. Watch it with the lights on.

The video is part of Consumer Watchdog's "Do Not Track Me" campaign (the efforts of InsideGoogle.com) and plays on the Times Square jumbotron 36 times per day. Ironically, the video is on YouTube, which is owned by Google.

"Google has collected massive amounts of personal data from Wi-Fi networks through its Street View cars, made private Gmail contacts publicly available on Buzz, and done a complete about-face on net neutrality, joining with Verizon in calling for toll lanes on the Internet," John M. Simpson says on Consumer Watchdog's blog.
