Freddie's Doodle in the Top 20 Google Doodles for 2011

The Google Doodle celebrating what would have been Freddie Mercury’s 65th birthday was voted 19 in the list of 30 Best Google Doodles of 2011.

In a very rare and extraordinary tribute to Freddie, Google celebrated his 65th birthday by running a very special doodle on its homepage. The 1:30 clip sought to capture the dynamism and diversity of Freddie’s career through an animation that was as colorful and playful as his stage performances.

The quirky tribute was created by Google’s in-house team of illustrators, animators and engineers. It was available for users outside of the US on September 5th, what would have been Freddie’s 65th birthday, and was on in the US on September 6th as a belated “Happy Birthday” to Freddie since his actual birthday fell on Labor Day.

What a great start to the year for all of us here at Freddie For A Day. Roll on FFAD 2012!
