Google’s Snake Easter Egg During YouTube Video Loading

Remember your very first cell phone before the touchscreen revolution? It was likely a brick preloaded with a few time wasting games like Block Breaker, Memory, and Snake. Considering what’s at our fingertips now with the iPhone, Android, and WebOS the days of Snake seemed long gone. Clearly Google’s got stock in Snake because they’ve snuck in a new easter egg that unlocks Snake to hold your attention until you’ve upgraded past dialup speeds. Here’s how you do it:

  • Load up a YouTube page
  • Pause it as it begins to load right away
  • Press the arrow keys to activate Snake

It doesn’t seem to work on embedded videos but load one up on YouTube and see how long you can get it.
