Valentine's Day celebrated in lovey-dovey Google doodle

Love is in the air today, as Google celebrates love in all its forms for Valentine's Day.

Love is in the air today, as Google celebrates love in all its forms for Valentine's Day. A charming animation greets lovers everywhere, including a gaggle of loved-up couples of all shapes and sexes.

The animation shows a young man using Google to woo -- woogling? -- a skipping girl. And failing. She doesn't want any of the things he's found using Google, which is a curious message for the search giant to send out. She doesn't want a flower, a balloon animal or a magic top hat -- in fact, she just wants someone to skip with. D'awww.

The doodle ends with a message of tolerance and acceptance: man and woman, man and man, cat and dog, alien and spaceman -- all forms of love and marriage are honoured this Valentine's Day.

The animation was created by animator Michael Lipman, soundtracked by Tony Bennett singing Cold, Cold Heart.

Previous action-packed doodles include the stunningly intricate tribute to author Stanislaw Lem, a pumpkin-packed Halloween video and the epic 8-bit ode to Queen legend Freddie Mercury.
