The donut error pages appeared on Gmail for me in May 2006. Not the exact same but it did say the server couldn't have a donut.

i think they plan on getting rid of the media page. i was actually surprised that there was one since google usually doesn't create that kind of content. maybe they'll replace it with some user created media base thing.
