I am an agnostic when it comes to Valentine’s Day (shoulder shrug), but OH MY HEART today’s Google Doodle is bewitching and lovely and you should listen to it right now! Right. now.
It’s basically a mini-episode of This American Life, replete with earnest Ira Glass intro and instrumental soundtrack. Behind each candy heart lies a 90-second love story and a simple, delightful animation. (If you click on another tab the audio will stop, so don’t open another tab you naughty hyperactive attention-deficit-disordered internet addict, you!)
If you’d like to know more about how this project came together, here’s a little video.
To quote Glass: “Happy Valentine’s Day to you. From… the internet!”
