Call the Coast Guard, there’s a floating Eclair statue at the Googleplex [Video]


Slow news day or best Android video of the year? There seems to have been a bit of inclement weather out in Mountain View, which has created a bit of flooding outside of Building 44 at the Googleplex. The resulting marsh has claimed the Eclair statue that once sat peacefully among the other deifications of Android versions past and present. It was found floating in a sizable puddle, much to the chagrin of a couple of Google employees (including Dan Morrill). One was even tempted to take the buoyant treat for a ride. Don’t worry, though. The statue was rescued from certain watery doom and returned to a stationary position amongst its brethren.
