London Olympics 2012 – Google Doodles
YouTube, which is actually a Google-owned site, has become more strict nowadays along with broadcasting companies which had the exclusive covering rights of the London 2012 Olympics.
That is why finding the latest winning moment of Jamaica’s Usain Bolt and other top Olympians are hard to find unless your cable has that exclusive channel covering the event.
Good thing, Google had their Doodle running. Despite missing almost all of the games on TV because of work, I still felt the Olympic season that time through its creative and entertaining Doodles.
We know that the opening in London was a blast, but Google Doodle’s opening
based on this Doodle is so simple. LOL!
And they started with the Archery game. Our very own, Philippine’s
Pride, a Sillimanian like me, Archer Mark Javier was
one of the Olympians.
I just don’t know what’s the artist’s idea on this, to me, this diver is
is a bit bigger compared to actual Olympic Divers. 🙂
This one is crazy funny, I mean, that Fencer holding the letter “L” of
Google obviously lost the fight. Why? He lost his sword, that’s why. Hmmm
With this one, what I can say is, this Gymnast is Mr. Suave. Look
at his mustache. LOL!
Ahuh?! What’s on this Doodle, her boobs (ooops, sorry to say that),
being the second letter “O” of Google and her round/curve butt is
the letter “g”. I’m not sure actually. 🙂
I know what happened to this one, that white haired Olympian was
the losing player. I can tell by the expression of his face; I can
relate because I also play ping-pong, though I am not a pro.
The funny thing here is, the Olympian’s hair is too long eh. 🙂
This one is cool. A multi-race representation. A non-racist illustration.
Ahhh, I see. So Pinocchio played Javelin in London huh?! LOL!
And the armpit, look at his armpit. I’m sure, the Google artist
who made this was laughing while asking an approval for it.
I know most of you were able to play this interactive Doodle. But this made
me think, why the h_ll did Google make its interactive Doodles
few days away from the Olympic closing ceremony? Sigh.
I also enjoyed playing with this one even if I was still at work in the office.
Ssshh… Don’t tell anyone. See my score? 24, not bad huh!
And this one is awesome. Most bloggers described this interactive
Doodle as the most difficult one to play, which I also agree. :):)
I like Soccer Football, but I am not a Goalie at all. I didn’t take
a screenshot with the one with my score on it coz it was a mess. LOL!
Okay, back to simple Doodle. What else can I say?!
Obviously, the team responsible for these Doodles were already tired.
No longer interactive especially if you compare it to the actual closing
ceremony in London. 🙁
But all in all, it was entertaining. Since Google started its Olympic Doodle during 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney Australia (correct me if I’m wrong), this London Olympics Doodles were the best. How much more if all of it were all interactive. 🙂
We’ll wait for another 4 years for another set of Olympic Google Doodles. This time, will be in Rio de Janeiro Brazil.
