Google usually creates a special "doodle" to mark events, but the Mountain View based company almost always allows users to click on the logo and find out why it was created.
This time the only thing the company will say is, "Today's doodle is fast, fun and interactive, just the way we think search should be."
There are numerous theories about the balls bouncing around the Internet, including that the balls are in celebration of Google's 12th anniversary.
