John Lennon at 70: Imagine Google's animated homage(Read article summary)
John Lennon – the former guitarist and vocalist for the Beatles – would have been 70 on Saturday. And to celebrate, Google UK has uploaded an interactive Lennon doodle to its homepage.
John Lennon, the pioneering songwriter and a member of the most-famous pop group of all-time, would have turned 70-years-old on Saturday, and to celebrate, Google UK is running an interactive doodle on its homepage. (Video below.) Alas, American users get nothing more than the regular old Google logo (at least today), but if you're longing for a look at the Lennon doodle, navigate over to Google.co.uk.
Update: The doodle is now on Google.com as well.
The logo initially appears to be a static illustration; click on the play button, however, and a short video – set to the song "Imagine" – will begin to play.
