Google today marks the 65th birthday of Freddie Mercury, lead singer for Queen until his death in 1991, with an animated Google Doodle. The 98-second-long animation shows the lead singer of the British rock band Queen navigating through a crazy world inspired by his own lyrics. In one scene that looks like an old-school video game, Mercury bounces off clouds, flies on a tiger and shoots at aliens from a spaceship, all to his hit song “Don’t Stop Me Now.” The Google Blog features a guest post by Queen guitarist Brian May, “Happy Birthday, Freddie Mercury“.
