Google’s Freddie Mercury Doodle Is A Kind Of Magic

Google’s homepage doodles just keep getting better. Today’s Google is in honour of Freddie Mercury’s 65th Birthday, and it’s awesome.

We’ve had Pac-Man, we’ve talked to the folks behind the scenes, and I didn’t think there was anything more Google could do to surprise me. Today’s doodle — I won’t spoil it, head over to Google to view it yourself — proves that while they may be killing off all sorts of projects, Google Doodles are clearly alive and well for the time being. Although it’s obscured under layers of HMTL, it’s even got full Queen authenticity, as it appears to have been rendered in Flash.[Google]
