FOR VALENTINE’S DAY, the latest home-page Doodle gives new meaning to “Google Glass.”
To mark the day celebrating love and devotion and molar-melting corn syrup, Google has teamed with public-radio host Ira Glass for an animated Doodle that delivers sweetness all its own.
Click on each of the six candy hearts and you’ll hear tales of love curated by Glass — some from the archives of his show, “This American Life.”
Team artist Jennifer Hom — whom Comic Riffs spoke with about a previous holiday Doodle — took the lead on this assignment, right down to the line-art animations.
Hom says that her favorite love story — titled “Puppy Luv” — involves a middle-school crush.
The other five anecdotes of love in various forms are titled “Crush,” “Mr. Right,” “First Kiss,” “4Ever Yours” and “Blind Date.”
Google has unveiled artful animations before on this holiday, including Michael “Lippy” Lipman’s heart-warming 2012 episode of playground passion, set to the tune “Cold, Cold Heart.”
