KAMI learned that the multinational technology firm featured a doodle of the famous celebrity to mark his 92nd birth anniversary.
The said artwork temporarily replaced the logo of Google which appears every time internet users go to the search homepage.
Mervin Wenke, the head of communications and public affairs for Google Philippines, stated through a report by Rappler that the comedy king is one of the iconic showbiz personalities in the country.
He also stated that the much-talked-about move by Google serves as a way to commemorate the incredible talent and passion of Dolphy.
"Google Philippines is proud to showcase one of our country's iconic entertainment personalities to the world," Wenke quipped.
"Through this Google Doodle, we recognize and pay tribute to Dolphy's remarkable talent and passion which have made a significant impact in the local entertainment industry, bringing laughter to generations of Filipinos. We hope that today, everyone is reminded of Dolphy's legacy and how he taught everyone to find joy in everyday life," he added.

Zsa Zsa Padilla, the comedian’s wife, willingly showed to the public several months ago the luxurious vintage watch given to her by her husband.
