Father’s Day is Sunday June 17 and in celebration of that day Google has released a new Google Doodle that reminds dads to kick up their feet and allow coffee to be delivered by a robot as they read the newspaper.
Watch the entire Google Doodle all the way through and you’ll quickly realize that the robot is being controlled by the hidden letter E.
Father’s day is traditionally held on the third Sunday in June and was created in 1910 by the American Sonora Dodd.

Father’s Day started just two years after the first Mother’s Day in 1908.
