I've gotta say, Google has always done an exceptional job in convincing people of what seems outrageous become real. They are clearly international leaders in innovation, much like Disney, and do an outstanding job in revealing their products, real or fake.
- Pirate Map on Google Maps
- Google Nose - smelling for fun
- Gmail Blue Skin
- Youtube Closing
- Google Analytics shows International Space Station visitors
I think my favorite is the Google Maps showing pirate treasure locations - they always put so much time and effort into a positive and interesting public image.
