The clip imagines the late star (who passed away in 1991 due to AIDS complications), cavorting through a heavenscape packed with 8-bit objects and some of his most iconic outfits.
Today, Google is paying tribute to the late guitar pioneer Les Paul with a guitar-themed doodle that allows users to play it and record songs of their own.
The doodle, which was designed by engineers Kristopher Hom and Joey Hurst and doodle team lead Ryan Germick, will be up for 24 hours, and was released to celebrate what would have been Paul's 96th birthday. (Paul, a leader in the development of
