Time-Lapse of Google Logo Carved Out of Giant Pumpkins

In celebration of Halloween, the front page of Google is featuring a time-lapse Google Doodle animation of their logo being cared out of giant pumpkins on the lawn of the Google campus in Mountain View, CA.

To celebrate Halloween this year, the doodle team wanted to capture that fascinating transformation that takes place when carving a pumpkin. Instead of picking up a few pumpkins from the grocery store, however, we decided to work on six giant pumpkins, specially delivered from nearby Half Moon Bay (some weighing well over 1,000 pounds). What you see is a timelapse video of the approximately eight hours we spent carving in the middle of our Mountain View, Calif. campus.

Here’s a behind the scenes video that shows how they were made.
