Google's Homepage Homage to El Santo!


Back in July 2015, I wrote about Google's homage to Eiji Tsuburaya and his contributions to Japanese kaiju or monster movies. Most notably, his effects work on Godzilla and the Ultraman series.


Google's landing page is known for its often interactive doodles that incorporate current events and colorful pop culture homages.


Just 2 days after Sept 21, voted the National Day of Lucha Libre (El Día Nacional de la Lucha Libre) by the Mexican Senate, Google celebrates the 99th anniversary of the birth of El Santo!
