We’re simply bystanders in the captivating universe of Greta Gerwig, Margot Robbie, and Ryan Gosling. This fact is reinforced by Google’s recent update, featuring a captivating theme that highlights the main cast and director of Barbie. The search engine has taken a flamboyant pink and sparkling makeover to celebrate the much-awaited debut of the Mattel-based movie this weekend. A simple search of any of the trio’s names on Google transforms your screen into a vibrant display of glitter and glamour. Not only does it change the typically white background into a vibrant shade of pink, but it also bedecks all the links with a rosy glow for the occasion. Plus, as soon as you hit the “enter” key, a delightful explosion of sparkles emerges to greet you.
This is not the first instance of Google’s creative exuberance for our favorite stars and characters. On May 4, they had our most cherished force-wielder, Grogu, creating an enchanting spectacle on the homepage. Similarly, during the peak of House of the Dragon, Emma D’Arcy and Olivia Cooke charmed us with their heartfelt chats about their preferred beverages. (A notable negroni sbagliato with prosecco, and a gin martini with a twist, respectively). Google commemorated the stars with their very own homepage takeover.
This weekend, Barbie is set to compete with other eagerly awaited films like Oppenheimer and Cobweb at the box office. Given the widespread plans for a double feature screening of Oppenheimer and Barbie, affectionately termed Barbenheimer, there’s a significant chance that Google may roll out similar exciting features for stars like Cillian Murphy, Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, Florence Pugh, and Christopher Nolan.
