Charlie Chaplin Google Doodle

It’s always a pleasure to visit the Google search page as you never quite know what to expect in the Google logo you will encounter as it might have received the Google doodle treatment.

Today, Google may well have produced the most fun experience yet, certainly that I’ve seen, marking the 122nd year since the birth of comedy legend Charlie Chaplin (born April 16, 1889) with a most imaginative video treatment of the logo that features the Google Doodle team in a 2-minute visual feast that mimics the style of the silent movie era in general, and Chaplin in particular.


The Doodle history:

[…] Doodles are known as the decorative changes that are made to the Google logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous artists and scientists. Whether it is the beginning of Spring, Albert Einstein’s birthday, or the 50th anniversary of understanding DNA, the doodle team never fails to find artistic ways to celebrate these unique events.

Having a little bit of fun with the corporate logo by redesigning it from time to time is unheard of at many companies but at Google, it is a part of the brand. While the doodle is primarily a fun way for the company to recognize events and notable people, it also illustrates the creative and innovative personality of the company itself.

    I think that the Google Doodles are a genius idea. They not only get visitors to Google’s homepage, but they also keep people updated on important dates in history and also are a lot of fun to see when you’re least expecting one! There have been a few times that I was just visiting Google to search for something and got sidetracked by one of their doodles and went on reading about the particular topic that the doodle was about!
