Google: Parisian Love

Google Images. Google Earth. And introducing ... Google Goose Bumps. Don't feel guilty admitting that the "Parisian Love" ad from Google, aired during the Super Bowl, touched your heart. Or made you shed a tiny tear. There are no people or places in this ad, just a piano anthem and a Google search screen, with a user typing "study abroad paris," then "cafes near the louve" — OMG, he misspelled Louvre, how cute — followed by "impress a french girl," "what are truffles," and "long distance relationship advice." You see where this is going, don't you? The music builds to a crescendo across "jobs in Paris" and "churches in Paris" and then, the final search: "how to assemble a crib." The ducts are now open. Damn you, Google. Damn you.
