"Be Kind Rewind" Movie Site With Google Reference

Be Kind Rewind is an upcoming movie about a video store owner (Mos Def) and his friend (Jack Black) who causes an accident that erases all tapes in the video store. Faced with losing his job, the video store owner and his friend go about recreating all the movies on their own in what the movie calls “sweding.” The homepage promoting the movie contains a recreated Google search homepage [with sound], the premise being that the internet has been deleted. (Not sure if it qualifies as parody, though it’s possible Google OK’d this one... I asked Google and will post a follow-up if they reply.)

Some of you recreated the Google homepage from scratch (and memory) too a while ago...

[Thanks Jan Schl├╝nzen!]
