Mysterious Google Logo

googleufo.pngYou may have noticed that Google has a rather mysterious logo today, with the second “o” in “Google” being abducted by a UFO. Google has been producing Google Doodles, the name given to custom Google logos, since 1998, when the Google employees went to the Burning Man Festival and put up a custom logo to let people know where they were. Usually these Doodles are put up during a holiday or to commemorate the birthday of a scientist or artist.

Clicking on the logo takes you to the search results for “unexplained phenomenon” on Google. TechCrunch also notes that Google has posted a coded tweet on its Twitter account:

“1.12.12 15 1.18.5 20.15 21.19”

In the message, “1” corresponds to “a”, “2” corresponds to “b”, “3” corresponds to “c”, and so on. When decrypted, the message reads “All your o are belong to us”. The message refers to “All your base are belong to us”, a phrase from the European version of the Japanese video game Zero Wing, which was poorly translated into English and became a web meme.
