search engine Google traditionally pleases users with unusual logos that are dedicated to important dates and memorable days. Most often, these pictures or videos are admired, but sometimes misfires occur, as happened on Sunday, June 19, Father's Day. The thing is that a funny picture in which the letter “l” in the word Google was replaced by an image of an orange tie, it also contained a small addition - it was this that caused a flood of complaints.
Next to the picture, users could read the phrase: “Dad. father. Pops. No matter what you call him, call your dad from Gmail. - "Dad. Father. Daddy. Whatever you call it, call your dad through Gmail.” In such a simple way, the holiday became an occasion for advertising the service Google - Google Voice, which in itself did not cause pleasant emotions among users.
And besides, the very proposal to call the father for many was a blow below the belt: someone has a relationship with their father that leaves much to be desired, someone has recently lost a loved one, and someone has never seen and does not want to see his father , unexpectedly quite innocent appeal emotionally touched many. Whether the creators of the logo should have foreseen such a reaction or not, whether it is possible to take into account the feelings of absolutely all users or there will always be someone dissatisfied, these questions do not and cannot be answered unambiguously.
