Google Doodle celebrates the 15th birthday with interactive piñata

Doodle challenges users to release as many virtual sweets as possible by thwacking a star-shaped piñata with a stick.

Google is celebrating its 15th birthday with an interactive doodle based on a Mexican piñata.

The doodle comes in the form of a basic video game that challenges the user to release as many virtual sweets as possible by thwacking a star-shaped piñata with a stick.

The doodle forms part of the celebration for Google’s 15th birthday, which has also seen the search engine create Google in 1998’ – a fascinating look at how the website looked in its launch year.

Originally called BackRub and based in a Menlo Park garage, Google was founded by PHD students Larry Page and Sergey Brin as part of a research project.

It has since grown into the world’s most visited website, making its founders multi-billionaires.

The reason for Google celebrating its birthday on 27 September appears to stem from an argument the search engine had with Yahoo in 2005 over their respective size and growth rate.

Now, it Google.com and have some fun 🙂
