Google's Clever Secret Valentine For Everyone

Google Mixes Art With Hearts On Valentine's Day

Today Google has rolled out an interactive doodle to celebrate of the "day of love," Valentine's day. Go to google.com and you're hit with clickable dancing candy hearts and ways to send your Valentine special messages and a free Disney animated love story video.

In a clever juxtaposition, Google and Ira Glass of "This American Life" introduces a collection of sweet love stories when the candy hearts are clicked.

Google gives us an animated short movie, Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story that's free for the watching, and even a chance to send a photo from the movie to your Valentine by clicking on the "Share a special moment with your valentine" at the bottom of the page.

But head to the Canadian Google site, google.ca and Googlers can create their own box of e-chocolates with virtual strawberries, caramel, and sprinkles. and send out your e-chocolates to your partner.

Meanwhile, here's a link to join a Google Hangout Live On The Air with Southwest Florida Online in an informal discussion about Valentine's Day and the Science of Love.

At least Google had commemorated today's much commercialized holiday with a bit of cleverness and entertainment through it's advertising deals with This American Life and Disney Studios.
