Aug. 5 is known for the Birthday of Queen frontman, the late Freddy Mercury. Google, in a tribute, has developed an amazing animation that has been inspired from the late rockstar’s life.
The animation has been set keeping in mind the band’s 1978 hit Don't Stop Me Now.
Below is the list of the top 10 Google Doodles of all time.
The Uncle Sam Doodle: On Nov. 30, 1999, an Uncle Sam doodle was developed by Google. When you clicked on the link, it would take you to a Google search page of the United States government.
The Peanuts Doodle (Thanksgiving): Created on Nov. 26, 2009, the doodle paid tribute to both Thanksgiving and Peanuts creator, Charles M. Schulz. It featured the adored Peanuts characters Snoopy and Woodstock cooking a Thanksgiving dinner. Chef Snoopy stood in for the Google l, with Chef Woodstock in Snoopy's hat.
Topeka Doodle: On Thursday, April 1, 2010, Google teasingly changed their name and logo to ‘Topeka’ for a day in response to the city of Topeka, Kansas. The city had unofficially changed its name to Google in the previous month.
Pac-Man Doodle: The Pac-Man doodle, by Google, marked the first doodle that was fully interactive. The doodle, that was made for May 21, 2010, was a fully functional rendition of the original Pac-Man game that was redesigned into the Google logo. The characters inside the doodle could be moved using the arrow keys on the keyboard. This was also the first time the ‘I'm feeling lucky’ button was altered as part of the doodle. Google later announced that they would keep the game permanently.
The Wizard of Oz Doodle: The doodle was made on Aug. 12, 2010, as a tribute to the 71st anniversary of the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz. It featured the main characters dancing on the yellow brick road, with the Emerald City in the background.
Frankenstein Doodle: The Frankenstein doodle was developed later that month on Aug. 30. It was made for the 213th anniversary of the birth of Mary Shelley, the British author of Frankenstein. The doodle showed a darkened room with ghostly portraits on the wall and a shadowy figure in a doorway.
John Lennon Tribute Doodle: On Oct. 8, 2010, a 32-second Video doodle was made to pay homage to late John Lennon’s 70th birthday. The doodle was made a day before the actual birthday. The ‘E’ of Google was shaped like a play button and the video was a simple animation. The animation was accompanied by Lennon's “imagine.” The logo remained live on Saturday, Oct. 9, 2010.
Jan Werich Doodle: On Feb. 6, 2011, a doodle was made which showed two laughing bearded actors in a Renaissance period dress, replacing both G's in the logo, apparently to celebrate the birthday of Czech playwright Jan Werich. The doodle drew controversy as it was also the 100th birthday of President Ronald Reagan, who received no recognition.
Harry Houdini Doodle: Google changed their logo to celebrate the 137th birthday of Harry Houdini, the renowned Hungarian-born American magician, stunt performer and escapologist on March 24, 2011. The Harry Houdini Google doodle was the first to appear after Google received a new patent: the System and Method For Enticing Users To A Web Site, approved by the U.S. patent office.
Freddy Mercury Doodle: On Sept. 5, 2011, Google's logo was dedicated to Freddy Mercury, lead singer of the British rock band Queen. The logo itself was made up of cartoon portraits of Mercury with a large play button on top. When pressed, a short cartoon would play to the music of Don't Stop Me Now.
