Google Is Celebrating Android Lollipop With This Goofy, South Park-esque Animated Video

Where Is Google's Newest OS? Whoomp! There It Is

Google just announced that the 13th major release of its Android operating system, Android 5.0, is called Lollipop -- and that's definitely a cause for celebration among the characters in this goofy animated video. The big "reveal" of the new product goes awry at the start of a stage presentation -- which may or may not be a comment on the elaborate launch spectacles that at least one Google competitor is known for -- but all is forgiven when the emcee finally presents Lollipop and the crowd goes wild. Cue Tag Team's "Whoomp! (There It Is)" and a tagline: "Introducing Lollipop: the sweetest Android release yet." The South Park-esque video was directed by Dan & Jason (Dan Abdo and Jason Patterson) via New York production company Hornet for Google Creative Lab.
