Snake Easter Egg discovered on YouTube

Just when you thought YouTube was the site to keep you entertained passively with video after uploaded video, along comes an unearthing of a new Easter Egg, or rather, a hidden function of the site in the form of the classic video game “Snake”. This comes across as no surprise since Google delivered a playable version of Pac Man to commemorate its 30th anniversary earlier this year. For those who are bored with whatever they’re watching on YouTube at the moment, you can keep yourself occupied with Snake by holding down the Up arrow key for around a second, followed by pressing down the Left arrow key simultaneously. This can only be performed when a video is fully loaded and paused. When the game starts, you will have to move the snake around the video without crashing into the “wall” of the video. Go ahead, give it a go!
