Kudos to Google celebrating Charlie Chaplin’s birthday!

So I sat down tonight to do some searching and saw an image for Google’s logo.

Google's Chaplin birthday doodle

It looked like a video (with the triangle in the middle) so I clicked it. Lo and behold, I see a Chaplin imitator! Not the best one but a very good one, and definitely done with resepect to the subject.

Yay for Google!

A couple weeks ago, I had wondered if they were going to do anything for his birthday, but was thinking in the realm of a static image. Was not even thinking a cute 2 minute film tribute!

According to Google’s blog (http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/04/lights-camera-doodle.html), they are going to have it up for 36 hours! The blog entry also has some behind the scenes pictures. Worth checking out.

Happy early birthday Sir Charles!
