If you've been around long enough, you'll remember when an "Easter Egg" required some effort to find. You'd have to basically know what to do from word of mouth to "hatch" it. Eg. You'd have to enter a certain formula in a certain cell in Excel, and if you followed the procedure up would come something like the names of the coders.

They were big in gaming too, you would have to follow some seemingly useless path in a game to stumble on another game or a reward of some kind. In a remake of Pitfall, for example, if you went to the right place, you'd end up inside the original Atari version of the game from 20 years earlier.

As with everything now, these things are just thrown right in your face.

I hate the use of this term - there's no "unwrapping" any more. Why not say "cross-references" or, God forbid, a word like "allusions".

Love how Denny's head swings around while he's drumming - perfect.

Off-topic I know, but I hear 'ya. The old Sega Genesis had a few neat ones hidden in their games. I remember an NBA basketball game where you could enter a code and have a player play golf. Another one had that throwback Pitfall Atari 2600 version you mentioned, I remember that well! And while it wasn't too practical, the Madden football in either 95 or 96 had all those old teams hidden behind codes, but that was more fun for NFL fans who would like to play the undefeated 1972 Dolphins or whatever. Good times.

I prefer the video they released four years with Brian dressed up like Santa Claus.  I love that video.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AbgxDgVmMF0

Really good video! Does good justice to the song and bridges that oddly wide theme gap between surf/beach and Christmas haha
