If you thought you had nothing to do this weekend but sit around all day and be bored, then Google has something to lighten your mood. The Mountain View-based company has launched a new project and everyone from all over the world is invited to join in and have some fun. All you have to do come up with a video of you having fun with Google Chrome’s icon.

Jason Toff, from the Google Chrome Team, explains: “We are announcing a new global project. Your task? Film yourself building the Google Chrome icon in a creative way, with whatever materials, as big, small, or crazy as you want. We will feature the best submissions. A handful of Googlers and a couple of our friends created some sample videos for inspiration. Check them out [here]. We can't wait to see the clever ways that you build the Google Chrome icon.”

Here are the technical bits and pieces you need to be made ware of:
- The video you come up with must be 15 to 60 seconds long
- All videos must be submitted to YouTube (click here to submit).
- All entries must be submitted by the 22nd of July, 2009.
- All entries must “capture the process of you building your creation”. That would be the creation that resembles the Chrome icon.
- It does not matter where you live, the competition is open to users from all over the world.
- The best entries will be featured on YouTube and Google.

A word of encouragement from Jason Toff: “We know from past experience that users are the ones who come up with the coolest stuff. So with that, we now turn the challenge to YOU to make a video showing the formation of the Google Chrome icon in a big, unusual or creative way. Imagine a bird's eye view of a parking lot with carefully arranged cars, coordinated outfits in a stadium's bleachers, a 10,000 M&M mural, etc. We are excited to see what you come up with and we'll showcase the best submissions!”

Additional details about the competition are available here.
