Imagine if, instead of being an online search engine, Google was a man in an office, surrounded by stacks of papers too high to see over. Imagine if every time you had a question to Google you not only had to wait in line outside his office, but you also had to watch ashamedly while he rummaged through the aforementioned files. Imagine the things you’d hear.
And then stop imagining, because fortunately for us those irresistible kings of fun over at College Humor blew everybody’s minds earlier this year with their hilarious short, What If Google Was a Guy. And here’s some even better news, they’ve just come back for round two, which sees Mr Google daub himself with paint in celebration of Jackson Pollock’s birthday, bury his face in his hands when a beautiful girl continues to ask him why her farts smell and fight repeatedly with a representative of the NSA. This is brilliantly funny stuff. Happy Friday folks!
