Google announced today that locations on Google Earth will now link to YouTube videos about those locations.

The videos can be viewed in Flash without leaving Google Earth or by opening an external link to the YouTube site.

A quick scan of randomly-chosen Bangkok showed a healthy number of videos already locationally linked, including a videos from tourists on a boat cruising down the Chao Phraya river and cruising the city by Tuk-tuk.

This joins other Google Earth’s other location-specific features such as locationally-linked photos, 3D buildings, and content from Discovery Networks, National Geographic, and the UN, among others.

On Tuesday, Google Earth announced that Street View maps of Chicago, Portland, Pittsburgh, Phoenix, Tucson and Philadelphia are now available.

Go forth and procrastinate.
