Google’s done some pretty epic doodles in the past. The one it’s done for the 2012 Olympic Games is not one of them.
We were really hopeful when we saw the picture on the Google home page. A load of cutesy looking Olympians with the Google letters arranged them, what would happen when the mouse hovered over them. Would they start enacting their perspective sports?
Nope. All you get is a line of alt-text saying “London 2012 Opening Ceremony”.
It’s a pity really. There was a ton of potential here and it was all wasted.
