CollegeHumor takes on Google privacy concerns in a humorous way with this video entitled, 'Google is Going to Blackmail You'.

Google is trying harder than ever to force people to sign up for Google Plus. And now, they've discovered a new strategy to do this: either you join Plus, or they'll release your search history and all the private information they've learned about you over the years.

The company's desire to know everything about a user in order to sell ads against those details has long been a concern. Eric Schmidt, the now Chairman of Google, once said, "If you have something that you don’t want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place."

This isn't the first video to highlight privacy issues with Google. A while back, another video explained why the company's goal to expand to every element of your life should terrify you.

Take a look at the video below...

I bet they can hack my search history when I am using my iPad. I'd love to see them try!

So buying the nexus-wrecksus was not a good idea if that's involved? I see why google is not doing so hot!
