Google has launched “Valentine’s Day Doodle”, a short film celebrating couples everywhere. A boy uses Google to research the most appropriate gift for the girl he loves. She continues to jump rope through all his attempts to woo her, ignoring flowers, chocolate and other romantic gestures. Finally it’s only as he acquires a rope himself and joins her that she starts to notice him. The film ends with a collage of couples, including alien/spaceman, same gender, cat/dog, and frog prince/princess.
