Amid the fanfare of the Apple Watch launch, a few eagle eyed employees at Team Android today discovered an unusual easter egg within Google Maps. Visiting these specific coordinates on the outskirts of Rawalpindi, Pakistan, Team Android found an image of the Google Android mascot urinating over the Apple logo to be embedded within the map itself.

google maps apple logo
It's yet to be made clear who exactly created the image and placed it within Google Maps and, as Engadget points out, whether Google is even aware it exists at all at this time. While the two companies have been known to be rivals in the past, especially concerning their own individual Apple Maps and Google Maps services, today's development is an interesting new addition to their long history.

Update 7:46 AM: The addition was made by a Google Map Maker user who is likely not a Google employee.

Update 1:22 PM: The prank has been removed from Google Maps.

That's pretty wild. Almost looks like their system may have been compromised. From the same article, also found nearby this location:

That's kinda funny actually. Why y'all so serious? It's only like the networked PC logo in OS X having a blue screen. Nothing more than a light-hearted poke of fun at the competition.

It could be that Google didn't do this at all. As per Engadget

"It could have been made by a renegade Google employee, or a member of the public using a crowdsourced mapping tool like Map Maker. "

Naturally, everyone will immediately believe it was Google doing this.

Or the city has very Android oriented planning department, and that really is the shape of a park.

When this is Google, the reaction is "Stay classy."

If Apple does this, "lol it's just a joke no big deal."

In all fairness, the urinating part (as opposed to the android dwarfing the apple) turns it from being funny or joking to being crass and not classy.
