Google's Pac-Man

I sure hope you don’t miss this.

Today is the birthday of Pac-Man. In usual Google fashion, they morphed their logo on their home page into a Pac-Man game. But, this is way cooler than anything I’ve seen them do with their logo yet.

When you click the logo, the Pac-Man-like board comes alive, not unlike the toys in Toy Story. You can literally play the game right on the Google home page.

Now, how many people did that today? How much press did Google get? Seriously. Try it (May 21 only).

Everyone in my family did. At once. With the sound up. Yep.

^And that, my lovely readers, is a small taste of why Google is to the Internet what Monopoly is to board games.
