Don’t Stop Google Now on Freddie’s birthday | The Daily Dust delivering the best bric a brac, daily news and events with a British flavour

What would have been the 65th birthday of Freddie Mercury gets the ultimate birthday card. A Google Doodle.

Yes it’s going to be all over the internet soon, but there’s nothing wrong with keeping Queen alive.

Doodler Jennifer Hom was the brains behind the elaborate doodle, which was a team effort. She and other illustrators spent about three months putting the whole thing together. They even studied a bunch of old Queen albums and videos to pick out visual cues… "Considering how colourful Freddie’s career was, we wanted to create a doodle that was just as colourful," said Hom, who tried to squeeze in as many humorous and respectful references that she could.
