NEW YORK (CBS) The front page of Google celebrated the 30th anniversary of the legendary Pac-Man video game today with its very own Pac-Man game embedded in the Google logo.

The game had office mongers and gamers glued to the homepage. This isn't the first time Google has created a fun themed logo that has everyone buzzing. They also recently teamed up with Sesame Street for their 40th anniversary.

I spoke to the brains behind these themes: Marchin Wichary, Senior User Experience Designer and Ryan Germick, Google Doodler. They told me about why they decided to give homage to Pac-Man for 48 hours and what it takes to be a Google doodler.
