Things to Google That Give an Unexpected “Turn” to Results

Advertisement

Many of us have realized that some of our favorite Google Easter eggs such as “A Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far Far Away” are no longer working. Since this scrolling Star Wars themed search that turned your browser into the movie’s intro has expired, I’ve decided to create a list of all of the Easter eggs that do work!
So take a look and remember to Google each of these to experience the amazement yourself! Since Easter Eggs are better left with a little mystery, I won’t give you pictures of the results so you can receive the full effect!
