Not now, no. I'll try rescuing it from a hard-drive that's crashed recently.

gosh, are you one of those people who have to dissect everything?
the turtle is a second in a 2.5 minutes video. and no one really thinks about that.

i do think about that stuff (little things makes a big impression!).. and want to know what else? when i do clipping path on adobe photoshop®™© and put it in a background i.e. sunglasses. i make sure that you can see thru the background.

It really doesn't matter what the end product ended up looking like, Google achieved their objective as soon as people started submitting videos and getting their friends involved in helping them make them.

it's the perfect concept!
it's about showing that people who use your product care about it enough to make a video for your ad even without getting paid or being entered into some kind of price draw.
also it's about the core of gmail - getting messages from one individual to another throughout the world and sharing a feeling of community (that's why they started enlisting people only by invitations).
btw, don't forget all the media coverage they got for free by this little stunt (and it really didn't cost them nada)

I think it makes Google seem approachable and humane. It's a great strategy for a tech company.
