Google Doodle Celebrates the Life of the Legendary John Lennon

SMS Text

This Saturday would have marked the 70th birthday of legendary icon and member of The Beatles, John Lennon. To honor his memory Google has created an extra special Doodle for its logo, which is on the homepage today. Replacing the brightly colored letters that we are use to, is an ink drawing with the famous shaggy haired and be-speckled image Lennon created of himself as a self-portrait, peeking out from behind to form the double “O”s . However, unlike other Google Doodles, this one has what appears to be (and is) a red “Play” button. Clicking on the button plays a 32 second video that contains a combination of moving ink drawings set to “Imagine” that come together to form today’s logo. The logo also marks the first ever Doodle Video.

    Really disturbing. Lennon must be turning over in his grave, he would never be about lending his name and music to a giant commercial interest. “Imagine” is all about a cashless, godless, utopia, not privacy-invading megacorporations.
