Excellent Easter egg in Vogue and GQ websites

| No Comments

This was probably my favorite thing that I saw online yesterday. Requires a computer keyboard.

  1. Go to the Vogue UK website.
  2. Optional but may help ensure it works: click on some blank space somewhere in the page that isn't a link (to get keyboard focus in the page).
  3. Using your keyboard, enter the Konami Code. That is, press the following sequence of keys: up arrow; up arrow; down arrow; down arrow; left arrow; right arrow; left arrow; right arrow; the letter b; the letter a.

    After you press a, something rather surprising should happen. It's very obvious, so if you don't see anything within a second or two, then try reloading the page and going through the key sequence again.

  4. Press and release the a key again. Repeat this step as many times as you like.
  5. When you're done, visit the GQ UK site and do the same thing, to see a similar but amusingly different result.
