If you don't have Google set as your homepage you may not have noticed this morning's Halloween-themed Google Doodle, in which case we say "click on the video above now!"
Google does Halloween-specific doodles every year, and for Halloween 2011 Google.com features a time-lapse video edited with a sort of Benny Hill-like zaniness with all sorts of costumed people popping in and out of the frame as the image takes shape.
The Googlers even wrote a blog post about their inspiration and raw materials:
"Instead of picking up a few pumpkins from the grocery store, however, we decided to work on six giant pumpkins, specially delivered from nearby Half Moon Bay (some weighing well over 1,000 pounds). What you see is a time-lapse video of the approximately eight hours we spent carving in the middle of our Mountain View, Calif. campus."
They even made a " making of" feature. At one point "Doodle team lead" Ryan Germick says: "We took a look at these pumpkins yesterday, and really tried to let them tell us what they wanted to be... I'm not a supersitious person... but some sort of communication happened."
