Consumer Watchdog hired a vehicle to pull a cartoon critical of Google's outgoing CEO through the streets of D.C.

The consumer protection group wants Congress to make Eric Schmidt testify about the scandal in which Google's mapping cars recorded private data from homes and businesses, the L.A. Times reported.

Hence "Mr. Schmidt Goes to Washington." The animated video compiles some of Schmidt's more controversial quotes into a fictional testimony.

Among the more famous was when he said, "If you have something you don't want anybody to know, maybe you shouldn't be doing it in the first place."

Schmidt later suggested that if people didn't like their homes being photographed by Google's Street View mapping cars, they should "just move."

Schmidt is stepping down in April.
