Another UFO Google Logo + Institute for Human Continuity 2012 marketing

Google has once again posted a paranormal themed logo above their search engine. The new version features a crop circle (above) and when you click on it, it takes you to a search for the term "crop circles." (You can see the other UFO logo below.)
The internet giant also posted a tweet on its Twitter account with the map reference 51.327629, 0.5616088, which eagle-eyed sci-fi fans have identified as the centre of the small town of Horsell in Surrey. This was the spot where HG Wells set the first UFO landing in his novel The War of the Worlds.
Everyone's trying to read deep significance into this. Is it about abduction? Or aliens? Or Horsell? Or just crop circles? No. It's almost certainly a viral marketing campaign teasing people ahead of some launch in a week or two. One possible explanation is that it's trailing an online "happening" that will coincide with the 143rd anniversary of Wells's birth next week. {source}
The beginning of this article would lead you to think it was just Google UK, but I'm on regular google.com and am seeing the same logo. I tried google.de (Germany) and google.jp (Japan) and all featured the same logo. Call this a world-wide-phenomenon on the world-wide-web!
I hope this isn't another lame viral marketing ploy, though. I'm getting pretty sick of those. Like the IHC (Institute for Human Continuity.) I've heard a number of calls coming into Coast to Coast AM of people who saw their commercial on TV and they wondered if this 2012 lottery was for real. I saw the commercial and new on the first viewing that it was just a commercial for a movie. If you watch the very end of it, it becomes clear to you. But their website is very fancy and clearly they spent a lot of time and money on it. There was another movie that recently came out that used a similar type of commercial, to make people think it was some sort of public service announcement. I guess this is the new thing to do.
This 30 second TV spot is actually different from the one I've been seeing and is the one all the callers were talking about. From the start you see the COLUMBIA (movie studio) clip, which clearly should tell you that THIS IS A MOVIE, FOLKS!

This is what I hate about the whole 2012 thing. People generally can't think straight when discussing it. They go into panic mode. Now before you complain to me, I don't mean everyone obviously. And on top of that, it's being used by people just to make a lot of cash, sell books, movies, t-shirts. It's LAME. Maybe we're all missing the point. The point being a new beginning. A new age. Or at least that's what I believe.
I've quickly gotten over the catastrophe theory. The solar even that will happen on December 21, 2012 happens EVERY December 21st! That's what these Apocalypse-pushers conveniently leave out. It's not really that big of a deal.

  1. I sense a trend coming on. Maybe Google is cashing in on it's own advertising program now. Wonder when they'll start showing real 2012 info artwork too!
