Google’s Highly Trained Monkeys at work

Google’s Highly Trained Monkeys at work

500 Internal Server Error messages are common nowadays on the web; such errors are thrown by the server when there is any server related issue due to which the server might not be responding back to requests from the browser.

Nowadays websites are coming up with more entertaining and creative ways of showing this error and a great example of a popular error page is the Twitter’s “Fail Whale”! The below Fail Whale image is a very innovative and creative way of throwing an error message due to overload on the server.

Similarly, Today I observed another creative try from Internet Giant Google on their YouTube.com. The below image shows the screenshot of their version of 500 Internal server error message and it says “A team of highly trained monkeys have been dispatched to deal with this situation, if you see them, show the below message”! Now, that was a super cool error message.

That is pretty funny. It's interesting that on their own site they were having programming difficulty. Oh well, at least they had a seance of humor about it.
