Charlie Chaplin: Google Doodle celebrates 122 years since his birth
The birth of Sir Charles Spencer “Charlie” Chaplin, the English comic actor, film director and composer best known for his work during the silent era, has been celebrated by the search engine Google
Marking 122 years since his birth, Google has transformed their usual logo into a two-and-a-half minute Charlie Chaplin tribute video that stars a look-alike of The Little Tramp.
Google, the world’s most popular and most visited website is known for its celebration of special days and occasions but has only rarely featured a video doodle on its homepage.
In the black and white video, Chaplin is moved on by a policeman after he is spotted reading a Google newspaper on a park bench, engages with an artist painting a Google logo and then tries to blag his way into an event without paying the $1 admission.
One of the methods he uses to try to get into the event involves him drawing his very own Google doodle. After eventually deceiving the policeman into giving him money, he is able to skip up the road with his trademark cane.
After the video ends, the user will be taken to a Google page showing search results for “Charlie Chaplin.”
