If any of you are frequent users of the most popular search engine on the web, then you surely would have noticed the new art that frequently decorates Google’s logo. This time though, Google decided to make it extra special, as tomorrow is the 122nd birthday of the great Charlie Chaplin.
While Google is known to sport a different logo in order to celebrate/commemorate different events, and sometimes just even to educate, using live action video for their logo is far and wide apart, and really has to be a celebration for something/someone special. In the past, Google has celebrated other great personalities with their cool Google Doodles, such as Harry Houdini, and interactive ones with Jules Verne and John Lennon, and this one is certainly just as exciting and entertaining for someone who was certainly quite the entertainer in his time, as well as even now.
Charlie Chaplin is an iconic figure in the movie industry, and although he is most noted for his amazing acting skills and abilities in silent films, he is also know for directing as well, producing more than 80 movies in his time. That wasn’t his only role though; many-a-time, Chaplin could be seen performing various other acts for his movies, such as creating the musical scores or even being the hairdresser! If there was one man who loved what he did, it was Charlie Chaplin.
The video being featured on the Google homepage is a piece of work in its own respect. Featuring the whole Doodle team (with Google Doodler Mike Dutton playing the great Charlie Chaplin), the movie was shot in Niles, California, and if you know anything about Chaplin films, you know that this is where many of his films took place, such as The Tramp, and is also home to the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum, a place where visitors can come and marvel at various pieces of equipment and such from all the old films.
