Remember last year when Google's Matt Cutts and Bing's Duane Forrester grew moustaches? That was for Movember, a decade-old campaign to draw awareness to men's health started in Australia.

This year, ahead of November, Google has released a new Chrome video celebrating the campaign.

"For ten years, Movember has been changing the face of men’s health," says Gabriella Conlon from Google's Chrome marketing team. "Movember has grown from humble beginnings with a couple of blokes having a beer and deciding that it was important to raise universal awareness for men’s health. The movement took off across the globe as photos and support were shared over the web."

"At Google, we have been inspired that a group of motivated Aussie guys could spark global change — and have such fun doing it along the way," says Conlon. "So we’ve chosen to celebrate this story in our new Chrome video."

We haven't heard yet if Cutts and Forrester will be going the moustache route again this year.
