Google Feature – Valentine’s Day Doodle

Valentine’s Day is on Tuesday, February 14, 2012. Google is celebrating the holiday with an animated doodle on its home page. Tony Bennett’s rendition of Hank Williams’ classic blues ballad “Cold, Cold Heart” accompanies the one-minute animation. Google’s first Valentine’s Day Doodle appeared way back in 2000.

Hovering over the doodle displays the message:

“Happy Valentine’s Day! Cold, Cold Heart performed by Tony Bennett courtesy of Columbia Records and Sony/ATV.”

Here is the image of the doodle on Google’s home page:

The Valentine’s Day Google doodle is in the form of a short animated love story of a young boy who tries to find a gift for a girl he loves, but fails to impress her, and illustrating that Google can’t solve everything.

Clicking on the play icon plays the video and then users are directed to a search results page on Valentine’s Day.

The first video that Google put up in place of its logo on its home page was on the occasion of Charlie Chaplin’s 122nd birthday.
