It’s a phrase we’ve all probably (should have) heard at least once a day, but it does have an origin. The term “more cowbell” originates from that classic SNL skit with legendary record producer Bruce Dickinson played by Christopher Walken. More can be found at this link, but the reason I bring it up is Google just tweeted:
Need more cowbell? Type +/’\ when you’re chatting in Gmail.http://goo.gl/uk76o
I just tried it out in a quick chat to a friend, and let me tell you, this is why I have such a hard time believing Google is turning evil. This is just too much fun! Hop on Google Chat to try it out now! Enjoy.
You stay classy, World Wide Web.
