Google releases video showing how Android Oreo's statue was created

Android 8.0 Oreo is the next version of Android, despite previous rumors stating otherwise. As with each new iteration of the mobile platform launched, Google places a big, nice mascot in front of its Mountain View headquarters that represents that version of Android.

The recent launch was no exception and Android Oreo has its own statue that's been built in much secrecy by the artists that Google chose. A video that goes through all the manufacturing process of the statue and its unveiling has been recently published by Google.

It appears that the status was disassembled to fit into a crate and then pulled out and reassembled a bit ahead of the solar eclipse, but just in time for the big reveal. During the reassembly process, the participants were handed Oreo-flavored ice cream.

The new Oreo mascot is slightly different than any of the other statues representing various versions of Android since it's completely motorized, letting people control its pose via a tablet.

In any case, you'll definitely find other interesting things by watching the behind-the-scenes Android Oreo video, so click that play button above.

All versions named after sweets, this flamboyant mascot... you'd think Tim Cook is in charge of Google.

Tim Cook may be gay but he is as rigid as any successfully stuck up CEO. Anyway, that my opinion and opinion are like asshole everyone has one.

And I thought it was a statue full of OREO biscuits like what the description said.
