For all of you who want to take a break from Cat and baby videos, Google recently introduced a new feature to YouTube that includes a built-in missile command game. YouTube marketing is calling it an “Easter Egg” just like many of the hidden features you can find throughout its services.
To access the missile command game, view any YouTube video page and type 1980 on your keyboard.
The game will show up and integrate into the video. This makes the video restart and link itself to the game.
A health bar will appear at the top of the game, and this is actually the health of the video. As missiles hit the ground, they are hitting the video and making the health go down. As the video is damaged the virtual screen for it will crack.
Let the video get hit too many times, and it’s game over.
Try it for yourself on any groovy YouTube video you can find.
