Dropping huge statues on the front lawn of their Mountain View campus has become something of a tradition for Google. Realizing the practice has evolved into something greater than a simple PR stunt, little wonder the company began using it to celebrate events other than major Android releases. For example, Google allowed its Doodle team members and friends to carve six giant pumpkins on the campus front lawn in celebration of this year’s Halloween.

The pumpkins were specially delivered from nearby Half Moon Bay and some weighed well over a thousand pounds. It took them eight hours to carve the pumpkins into the Google logo. Check it out in a time-lapse video above and make sure to sit through the end for the Halloween spirit surprise. Go past the break for a behind-the-scenes clip on Google’s giant pumpkin Halloween doodle.
