A homeowner daubed ‘watch p*rn, not me’ across their roof to seemingly mock nosy neighbors spying on Google Maps – but the stunt backfired as tens of thousands are now flocking to view it.
The gorgeous waterside property is located in Lake County, northeastern Illinois, which boasts natural terrain ranging from sand dunes to prairie.
An image of the property was shared by a Facebook user posted a snap of the crude graffiti onto a dedicated group chat with fellow satellite imagery fanatics.
As a result, the rude message, that is painted in white block capitals to starkly contrast the homeowner’s black roof can now be found on Google Images, with the entire world able to see.

It seems that the painted message serves as a dig at those who spend perhaps too much time browsing on Google Maps, or poking fun at nosy neighbors
It seems that the painted message serves as a dig at those who spend perhaps too much time browsing on Google Maps, or poking fun at nosy neighbors.
Historical Google Maps images show the text has been on the roof since 2008 and it has faded during the past two years.
A Facebook post highlighting the incident has received over 120,000 interactions, with many taking to the social media platform to air their thoughts on the irony.
One claimed ‘the entire world’ is now watching their rural property, and another, appearing to be a Google Maps enthusiast added: ‘Near Chicago. Soon it should be a law to have a quote on your roof’.
Another commented: ‘This poor guy or whoever is probably seeing this and thinking ‘well sh*t, that didn’t work out.’
Another user remarked: ‘And then suddenly, the entire world was watching THEM.’
One joked: ‘I can’t disagree with the homeowner.’
It is unclear who exactly wrote the teasing message but social media users believe it was the homeowner.
Google Maps has been contacted for comment.
