Winter Olympic Google Doodles, rankedOn February 23, 2018 by Lucius
The Olympics are a time for some of the world’s best athletes to compete on the world’s grandest stage. It’s a time for the best humans on Earth to shine. But, you know, some times animals want in on the action too.
Cartoon animals, rather. During the duration of the Winter Games, Google has been throwing its own Doodle Snow Games, a lovely series of animations where jovial animals compete in Olympics-style competitions for superfluous awards. There’s chipmunks, millipedes, and raccoon dogs. Honestly, what more could you ask for?
As the Winter Games are coming to an end, it only makes sense to rank these works of art, awarding bronze, silver, and gold to the top three.
Take a look at some screenshots below and click through to see the full animation.
I don’t know what the deal with this fish is, but shooting your homies out of a tree is not Olympic behavior. Just look how resentful this insect looks. Last place.
This bear is great at the slalom, but that’s about it.
I mean this squirrel is cool, but something about being able to fly in a flying-based competition seems a bit unfair, no?
Honestly, I was just hoping this lil dude was ok.
The sound effects on this one get an A+, and hey, these ducks are the true winners just for trying.
Dogs flipping – what else do you need?
Millipede loves speed skating, but the real challenge is lacing up the skates.
Tag yourself. I’m homie on the far left.
These cranes play hockey with THEIR BEAKS. Yes, THEIR BEAKS.
Love isn’t dead, it’s two birds dancing on ice.
Have you ever watched fireworks atop a ski lift? Well, if this dog’s reaction is any indication, it looks like a blast. They’re good fireworks, Brent.
I’ve got no idea what a raccoon dog is, but it sure is good at the downhill slope.
This tale of sportsmanship deserves a gold medal, as well as an Oscar.
LOOK AT THIS CHIPMUNK’S FACE AND TELL ME YOU DON’T BELIEVE IN MAGIC.
See you next time, Google creatures.
