If you're of a certain age, then you no doubt remember spending hours staring at that DVD screensaver, forever waiting for the floating logo to finally hit the corner (spoiler alert: it never did). Well, in both the best and worst news of the week, Google has seen fit to resurrect the animation for a blast of nostalgia – and frustration.
Google 'DVD screensaver', wait for a few seconds, and the Google logo itself will start bouncing around the screen, changing colour every time it hits a side. Google's might not be one of the best logos of all time – but it's pretty neat to see it bouncing around like it's 1999.

Like many of the best Google Easter eggs, the DVD screensaver surprise is, well, pointless. But aside from the fun police, who cares? And let's be honest – even a constantly moving, bouncing logo is easier to look at than the company's confusing new icons.
Twitter users are enjoying the tiny web design treat – although, as many have pointed out, if you're waiting for the logo to hit the corner, you're going to be in for the long haul. Give it a few hours, though, and you might get lucky – like the team from The Office (below).
