Google Chrome FastBall

A Race Across the Internet by Google Creative Lab, BBH NY and B-Reel. We challenged the world to prove they’re “Chrome Fast” by launching FastBall, an interactive game on YouTube that turned everyday sites into a race around the web. Players demonstrate the browser speed as they help move a chrome ball through a giant obstacle course by using Google’s various web services including Google Maps, Translate, Search plus Twitter and Chrome FastBall was the first interactive YouTube video game of its kind and had over 1+ million games played.
