On Thursday, Apr 15, Google gave a chance to the people to laugh aloud as it paid its tribute to the English comic actor Sir Charles Spencer "Charlie" Chaplin. This time the Google Doodle has not only depicted a static image but also featured a specially themed Video to celebrate Chaplin's 122th birthday which is on Saturday, Apr 16.
Anyone, who visits Google's main home page, has been presented with a YouTube video replacing the usual static Google logo. Google Doodle staff specially featured the black-and-white video, starred with its own employees. The video is a short movie featuring gags borrowed from Chaplin's silent films.
The word - Google appeared several times in the video. A newspaper, which Chaplin was reading, showed the comments - "New 'Talkie' films just a fad, says local film expert."
After the video ends, the user will be taken to a Google page which gives a vast idea about Charlie Chaplin. Chaplin was born in 1889 and was knighted in 1975 by Queen Elizabeth. He died on Christmas Day in 1977.
Some of Chaplin's best movies are - The Tramp (1915), The Kid (1921), The Gold Rush (1925), City Lights (1931). The Great Dictator (1940).
