Google is back with its cute little animated ‘Jinx the ghost’ that made its debut at Halloween last year. “This year animates an ordeal that has haunted us all: the costume dilemma,” said Google.
Google has released an animated video in which Jinx the lonely ghost can be seen struggling to decide which costume to wear on the spooky occasion. Should Jinx be a witch? A mummy? An astronaut? A bat? Or a pirate? The choice is tough!
Dying to get it right and fit in with the trick-or-treat crew, Jinx tries to wear a witch’s costume which fails miserably when the hat and cape fly off when Jinx runs through a tree . The mummy wraps did not work, they snagged and tore to pieces. After several failed attempts, Jinx realises that there is no one he can spook, so he ends up joining the trick-or-treat gang in his true form and is accepted too.
“We settled on Jinx and a meaningful story of not being spooked out of being yourself, “says Google. "In the end, Jinx finds wearing a disguise is no match for being yourself."
Google has been adding spookiness to the day for many years now. Going down the memory lane, here's a look at how Halloween Google Doodles have evolved over the years:
