A tribute to legendary Queen front man Freddie Mercury took center stage at Google in much of the world on September 5, 2011 in the latest 'doodle' merging technology and art to show the Internet giant's human side. An animated video crafted into the logo on Google's search page to honor what would have been the late rock legend's 65th birthday marked the latest step in the evolution of doodles that started as rudimentary clip art. Google users woke to Mercury everywhere but in the United States, where a Labor Day holiday prompted the doodle to be bumped to September 6.
