Rogue Google Doodle? Oscar Wilde Google Doodle In U.K. Not U.S.

Today is the 156th anniversary of the birth of Irish writer Oscar Wilde.

Google are celebrating this event by featuring a Google doodle image of Dorian Gray on their homepage in the U.K. but not the U.S.

While there is nothing unusual about Google substituting a doodle for the Google logo, this is the first time I can recall seeing a non U.S. Google property feature a doodle that wasn’t also featured on Google.com.

Soon will every Google property worldwide be able to run its own Google Doodles like Google.co.uk has done today?

What if any consequences are there for the Google brand?
