Even if you’re erudite enough to know that the Internet isn’t simply “a series of tubes,” there’s still so much you likely have to learn. With so much information that could be accessed in just a few clicks, there’s no way you’ll be able to find it, let alone absorb it all.
That’s especially true when all of these sites have such fun hidden messages and games on them. Why do research when you can play Atari? (And it only gets cooler from there.) Take a look at these Internet Easter Eggs!
1.) Google Images
Typing “Atari Breakout” into Google Images will start a round of the 1976 game right there in your browser.
Scrolling your mouse over the blue cup on Dutch retail chain HEMA’s website will start a chain of events that you probably didn’t see coming.
The rating for the 1984 comedy classic is out of 11, not 10. If you’ve ever seen the movie, you know why.
Clicking above the Facebook icon will make the gaming company’s site transform into a spreadsheet for stealth gambling at the office.
5.) Black Acre Brewing Co.
Clicking “I AM UNDER 21” when you visit the brewery’s website will give you the power! Something like that.
If you try to create an account on the email marketing service provider and you type in a username that already exists, you’ll get this TERRIFYING notification.
Wikipedia has an Easter egg on the entry for, you guessed it, Easter eggs.
Typing “askew” into Google will make the results appear askew. A definition is included, if the crooked page isn’t enough of a hint.
Typing “Do the Harlem Shake” into YouTube’s toolbar will make the site, well, do the Harlem Shake.
If you type “dance” while browing the professional video hosting site’s “Team” page, you’ll get quite the surprise.

Wow. Every time I think I’m fully aware of just how cool the Internet is, I get absolutely blown away by some new piece of information like this.
