Google's logo chomps on cherries in honor of Pac-Man

Google is known for changing up the logo on its homepage in honor of holidays and other momentous occasions. Up until today, one of my favorites changes was when Google commemorated the 40th anniversary of Sesame Street (see image below). However, the move to celebrate the 30th birthday of Pac-Man takes the cake!

If you click "Insert Coin" the game starts and you can actually play! Avoid the monsters and eat the cherries, all as you maneuver around a Google-branded coarse.

I love the way Google brings fun to search. You never know what you'll see on the homepage and now it has really upped its game (no pun intended) by making the logo interactive!

Happy anniversary Pac-Man (and thanks Google)!
