With a great choice of music too  ... Dave Brubeck's "Unsquare Dance"
 
2013-05-08 12:47:07 AM
I don't see how paying a creative team to make an animated music video is elaborate.

Compared to functional doodles we've seen in the past.

Loved the passing tributes to the great Alfred Hitchcock movies.

Well, I thoroughly enjoyed that.

Funny, I always thought  of that style as "60s style" and I never realized it was one guy.  Link

as far back as I can remember, I've always liked Saul Bass' work.

That was pretty damn cool. Highly enjoyed it. For some reason the music reminded me of some looney toons

Whenever I here that song, I think of the South Park episode:

Did he also do the credits for Dr. No?

No...that was Robert Ellis....

I had to open Internet Explorer to see it.  Why don't they make it so it works properly in the 2nd most popular on the net and not the 1st?

This one is more impressive and elaborate - http://www.google.com/logos/2011/mercury.html

I recently watched the entire 007 back catalogue.  Being accustomed to the ridiculously ornate credit sequences from later movies, I found Dr. No to be...underwhelming.

/60s were weird, man

Whaah!  May 8 is victory in Europe day.   There should be a the doodle of the US single-handedly defeating the left wing socialists in Germany.

I came here to post this. I agree. And now I have that song in my head.

I don't mean to be the guy that has sand in his vagina, but does there have to be a news story (and subsequent Fark greenlight) every time Google farts out a doodle?  It's like having a news story that the garbage truck came to your neighbourhood this week.  You don't say.  It does that every week.

Is there anybody that doesn't discover each new doodle on their own (like say when you open a new browser tab, and Google is the default page for new tabs), long before they get to a news story about it?

Raises hand. My default page is - about:blank

Wonder what they will come up with for Ray Harryhausen?

Yes, there is. Me. I use google for search but I never go to the google home page so I never see the doodle unless there's a news article about it and even then I often still don't go see it.

Same here, I use Safari and there is a google search built into the corner so I use that as its more efficient.  Besides, if my garbage man could entertain me for 60 seconds like that, I would farking post a video and a link on fark for others to appreciate it.

I have my homepage set to a "new Tab" for simple favorite clicking in Firefox.  I rarely go to the Google homepage because I have my browser search bar set to Google. So there is no need.

Because when I look at it in Chrome, the lines spin around the right arrow for several seconds, then it goes to the Google Search page for Saul Bass instead of functioning/displaying as it should.

The only poster he ever did that I didn't like was the one for The Shining. It's kind of lazy and plain.

Everything else was cool.

So given Google writes Chrome and made the doodle, Chrome has been the number one browser for something like a year according to the w3c stats, and everyone else here sees it fine, do you think the issue is with Google and everyone else or you?

Good point.  I know my Java is up to date.  Disabled Admuncher and that wasn't it.  And it also doesn't work in Chrome on my laptop with is synched with my home system, meaning it has the same extensions.  So it's probably one of my extensions.
