Google's Valentine's Day search homepage featuring "This American Life" love stories.

When you first click on a heart, you hear Glass say,  “As people everywhere search for love, something a search engine might not be the ideal tool for, each of the candy hearts brings you a true story of love. These are real people.”

This collaboration got started when Glass visited the team that produces Google Doodles a few months ago, according to Jennifer Hom, who led the project at Google. They talked about sharing love stories and the artists at Google began developing simple animations because, according to Hom, “we didn’t want to overshadow the audio.”
