I was reminded this morning of some of the pranks Google likes to play by a post on a friend’s blog. A new example Google Ad for Google AdSense reads:
“Visit the Red Planet in style.
Low-gravity fun for everyone!”
Sometimes companies get big and lose their sense of humor. It’s nice to see that Google is not one of those companies. Here are some other shenanigans ala Google:
Google Mentalplex – This one goes waaayyyy back. Search by thinking, no entering search phrases required.
Pigeon Rank – A classic expose on how web pages are “really” ranked on Google.
Google Moonbase is Hiring – Ah, life in the Googlunaplex.
Google Gulp – “…a line of “smart drinks” designed to maximize your surfing efficiency by making you more intelligent, and less thirsty.”
Undergoos – Google Underwear. This one is not by Google, but about Google.
Google Moon – Look closer. No, closer.
