Google's Valentine's Day doodle brings a tear to our eyes


OK, OK, that may be a little bit of an overreaction and we KNOW in many ways it’s a ridiculous holiday. However, Google’s doodle today is pretty damn cute and it’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face whether you’re loved up or single today.

It’s a short but sweet animation from Michael Lipman, an animator who spoke to TechCrunch about the project:

“When Google calls and says, ‘Drop everything, we want you to create somethign that’s going to be seen by hundreds of millions of people,’ you heed that call.

“The coolest thing, after having worked in online games for the last 10 years, is it was a wonderful return to storytelling […] It felt like a Valentine for me.”
