Google Releases Goofy Video Creation Tool

Google today launched a video creation tool called Search Stories. It’s a very lightweight little Flash tool to put together a little YouTube video of a number of search queries set to music. It’s mildly amusing but not really useful.

If you’ve seen LMGTFY (You haven’t? Well, LMGTFY) this is just like it, but with less snark and more apparent effort to engage users. I’m trying to have a sense of humor about it, but it’s hard. See my handy-work below. On the spectrum of sophistication among read/write publishing innovations, this one will help define the spread.

Google’s explanatory video below. Note that you can’t really make anything like this using the tool. It’s a cute video, though.
