Google do it again with a tribute Google Doodle to the late Freddie Mercury

Google has created a new interactive, animated doodle that celebrates the life of the late Freddie Mercury, arguably one of rock’s greatest performers. September 5th, 2011 would have marked Freddie’s 65th birthday!

The doodle, which is featured on the home page of all google pages (e.g. www.google.co.uk), features a large gold decorated button that plays the Queen song ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ as a cartoon animation cycles through photos and highlights of Freddie’s career. The doodle eventually loads a Google search for ‘Freddie Mercury’ that brings up websites, wikis and photos of Freddie’s career and achievements.

Google first struck a chord with their interactive guitar doodle to honour what would have been the late Les Paul’s 96th birthday back in June 2011. See: Honorary Google Doodle Marks Les Paul’s 96th Birthday and Rockin’ All Over The Web – Google pay tribute to Les Paul with interactive doodle.
