GOOGLE TO CELEBRATE FREDDIE MERCURY’S BIRTHDAY WITH VERY SPECIAL GOOGLE DOODLE
TRIBUTE TO LEGENDARY QUEEN FRONTMAN
GOES LIVE TODAY
To mark the 65th birthday of one of rock’s most iconic artists, Google posted a rare and extraordinary tribute to Freddie Mercury with a very special Google doodle on its homepage. The Google doodle was created to celebrate the life and talents of the legendary Queen frontman.
The video clip seeks to capture the dynamism and diversity of Mercury’s career through an animation that’s as colorful and playful as his stage performances.
Created by Google’s in-house team of illustrators, animators, and engineers, the doodle was available for users outside of the US on September 5th, Mercury’s 65th birthday. The doodle is available on Google.com in the US today, September 6th, as a belated “Happy Birthday” to Freddie since his actual birthday fell on Labor Day.
Google runs special doodles on its homepage as a celebration of holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous artists, pioneers, and scientists. The worldwide tribute from Google is something that doesn’t happen very often. Google has previously run video doodles for other legendary entertainers including John Lennon and Charlie Chaplin.
