Google Search gets ‘The Last of Us’ easter egg


From Ingenuity to Twosday and Wordle (a year old as of yesterday), Google Search loves its easter eggs and the latest –  creepily – marks HBO’s excellent The Last of Us.

You can tap three additional times (on mobile, more with the desktop version) to have the entire results page overtaken with fungus, which is mercifully illustrated/drawn rather than photo-realistic, like the show…

There’s a button to share The Last of Us easter egg (, and you can tap ‘x’ to clear the screen and continue searching.

No spoilers, but there’s a good opening that sees the show continue to expand on the origin of Cordyceps after the premiere featured epidemiologists in 1968 conversing with a talk show host played by Josh Brener (Silicon Valley’s Big Head). Meanwhile, the ending of “Infected” is an ending…

The Last of Us airs Sunday on HBO at 6 p.m. PT / 9 p.m. ET.
