Google’s Les Paul Tribute

Google Doodles are a fleeting joy.  They last a day and then disappear into the ether that is the Internet.  The latest and coolest is the Les Paul tribute, which turns the Google logo into an electric guitar and lets the user play compositions.  In fact, it was so neat that Google kept it up for another day. (I’d link to it but (a) it’s Google and (b) by the time this post goes up, the homepage will change back.  Also, you can go to YouTube and see people’s creations with the Les Paul tribute.)

The thing is though that the Les Paul tribute logo is very easily replicable on one’s home computer.  No Internet access needed, just the right software.  So why are we (myself included) so fascinated by Google’s logo?
