After fans have been waiting impatiently for the series adaptation of The Last of Us, the pilot episode finally came out last week. Since yesterday in the (very) early hours of the morning, the second episode is also available. As a result, a lot of people search for the title on Google – and for everyone who types it there, there is now a small “nice” surprise.
Mushroomed “Easter Egg”
Of course you can try for yourself what happens when you enter the series or game title into the search engine, but of course we’ll tell you what is meant here as well. After a few moments, a small red icon with a mushroom appears next to the search suggestions in the drop-down menu.
Well, it looks more like a toadstool, but if you click on it, nasty tendrils will spread out on your screen, so just like in the series. At first, only a few shoots push into your browser window from below, but just spam the mouse button and let the whole window disappear under disgusting growths.
Don’t worry, if you want to see something again under all the growth, you can just click on the cross. This puts an end to the spook immediately, even if you clicked a lot beforehand.
Here you can see what it looks like when the search engine is “ranked” quite heavily:
Info about the series
Incidentally, the nine episodes of the series always appear weekly on Sky/Wow, on the night from Sunday to Monday. All dates can be found in our overview article. This teaser offers a small foretaste of what awaits you in future episodes:
The Last of Us – New teaser shows what awaits you in the next episodes
The HBO series is very much based on the video game template, but also brings some new aspects or additional scenes with it. Linda, who knows the game inside and out, tells you in her column why she finds it so exciting. On the other hand, in my column you will learn why I (Samara) did not like the change from the mushroom spores in the game to the tendrils in the series in episode 2.
How do you like this funky little Google Easter egg?
