FIFA and Paul – the late psychic octopus.


It’s funny. No one among my friends could remember the famous Paul the Psychic Octopus who became so famous during FIFA 2010. Who wouldn’t have known him? He became world famous in such an instant and everyone (and I mean everyone watching the World Cup back then) would wait to see which team he would pick inside his aquarium. He was picking the right winner every time.

Well, Google fondly remembers Paul the Octopus and they even created their Google Doodle today in his honor. I was amused to see Paul the Octopus with a halo. It was kind of sweet and sad but I love it.

Here’s a video of the Google Doodle today. And an actual video from 2010 when he picked the right winner.

Rest in peace Paul!
