Google Carves Massive Pumpkins into Logo Doodle
October 31st, 2011
Today is Halloween, so all the kids and a bunch of adults will be out tonight rambling around begging for candy to eat. It’s also time for Google’s Halloween doodle on their home page. Google often has doodles that you can’t figure out without reading the alt text, but this one is pretty straightforward.
The Google name is carved into six gigantic pumpkins. Several of these massive pumpkins weigh over 1,000 pounds. Google workers spent eight hours carving them into designs that look like the letters needed to spell “Google.” I like the fifth letter the best myself, but the only one I could have carved was the giant “l.”
Check out the time-lapse video above to see all the carving and watch for Googlers in costume making cameos.
