Secret snake game on YouTube
Yesterday, while falling down a YouTube hole about weird jazz, I accidentally discovered some vids made just so users could enjoy an Easter egg. It’s been around since 2010, so I’m super late to the party.
Here’s what you do:
• Pause a YouTube video by clicking on the screen
• Hold down the left arrow key for about three seconds. The video will rewind, but don’t worry.
• Hit the up or down arrow, and the classic game of snake should appear on your screen. You can let go of that left arrow and begin controlling the snake normally.
People made special blank screens just for this purpose, though it works on any vid.
