Maybe we can turn this thread into a April Fools topic. Google Japan is not doing anything this year because of the earthquake and tsunami. Instead of that Googel Japan is showing alle winners from the Doodle 4 Google contest on the homepage.

<< It’s hard to believe that just a century ago, YouTube was a fledgling video site for paupers and presidents alike. Today, we celebrate 100 years of YouTube, and we thought we would reflect on our inaugural year with a re-print of our first blog post from 1911. In honor of this milestone, today’s homepage is a reproduction of how you might have viewed it 100 years ago. Check out some of the most popular videos of the time and be sure to try out our new upload mode which summons a horse-drawn carriage to pick up your video submission from your home. Here’s to another epoch of great video! >>

By adding "&vintage=1911" to a video, you can play it 1911 style.

REAL Gmail Motion! Knew someone would make it (The Kinect Homebrew scene has come up with even more ridiculous ideas), just wasn't expecting it to be that fast.
