  1. Excellent, but does Google want we believe they are poor, with their "non-3D special effects"? :-)

  2. No, Google wants us to see that, although they are filthy rich, they continue to be as simple as they were when they began...

  3. Google shows that it's possible to be funny without these "special effects". This is also way more original than it would be with special effects.

  4. I love how they used A/V audio cables for that first one.

  5. This is such bull... "We are just like you, a bunch of engineers playing with puppets in the office."
    Google is a multimillion corporation looking to get more subscribers to sell more advertising to make more millions. They're not dedicated to the users any more than Yahoo or AOL.

    If they were, they would try to put some real basic features, like I dunno: sorting messages by name, date or sender... before going for antispam propaganda!
