Google's Freddie Mercury Doodle

Google is celebrating what would have been Freddie Mercury's 65th birthday on Monday with its second longest doodle to date.


The 98-second-long animation shows the lead singer of the British rock band Queen navigating through a crazy world inspired by his own lyrics. In one scene that looks like an old-school video game, Mercury bounces off clouds, flies on a tiger and shoots at aliens from a spaceship, all to his hit song "Don't Stop Me Now."

The Mountain View-based search giant published the Mercury doodle worldwide on its homepage Monday, except for in the US, which will be celebrating Mercury's birthday on Tuesday because of a conflict with Labor Day.

Google decided to go with the song "Don't Stop Me Now" because it's one of Queen's top 10 hits of all time, plus Mercury actually wrote it.
