TL;DR
  • You can check out a cool easter egg for The Last of Us on Google Search.
  • Tap the red mushroom at the bottom of the search page to start a parasitic fungus takeover.

HBO’s The Last of Us is having a solid run right now, with two amazing episodes out the door. Google’s also having some fun with the growing popularity and fandom of the show with a creepy yet cool easter egg in Search.

So when you type in “The Last of Us” on both Google Search on the desktop and mobile, you’ll see a red mushroom at the bottom of the screen. Tapping the mushroom will populate your search results with a fungal growth, most likely Cordyceps, the main cause of the parasitic brain infection in humans in The Last of Us video game series.

You can keep tapping away at the mushroom for the page to fill up with the fungus. Thankfully, there’s an “X” button to get rid of it and continue searching away. If you’re a fan, you can also share the Google Search easter egg for The Last of Us with your friends through this link that can be copied from the search page itself.
