The video below takes you back to December 1999 to witness a Google all-hands meeting led by Larry Page and Sergey Brin, when the startup had fewer than 60 employees. After some new employee introductions the meeting shifts to a birthday celebration -- there's silly string, singing, and an overwhelming sense.

The video was recorded and posted over a decade later by Douglas Edwards, Google's director of marketing and brand management from 1999 and 2005 who blogs about his time at the search giant at his site Xooglers.

In the video, you'll spot plenty of familiar faces, including: Craig Silverstein (Google's first employee), current YouTube head Salar Kamangar, and a young Paul Buchheit.
