Since it’s Friday, we thought we’d bring you a few more fun Google search Easter eggs. These great hidden tricks contain references to Doctor Who, pirates, video game aliens, and more. Check them out!

If you haven’t seen our first five Google search Easter eggs, check them out here.

See every Google Doodle

Google Doodles history

You’re probably familiar with the “I’m feeling lucky button,” but have you ever pressed it without putting something in the search bar first? If you do, you’ll get taken to the Google Doodles page, which catalogues every fun Doodle that Google has placed on its home page over the years.

Zerg attack

Google Zerg Rush

Try searching for the term “Zerg Rush.” What comes next might alarm you a bit as the Os in Google start attacking everything around you! This is a tribute to the Zerg, the alien race from the hit game Starcraft, but even if you’re not a fan, you probably get a kick out of this Google easter egg.

The answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything

Google answer to life

It probably shouldn’t come as a surprise to see some video game and sci-fi references hidden within the products of a company like Google, so here’s another one for you. Try searching for “the answer to life, the universe, and everything.” Google, in a reference to Douglas Adams’ book, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, will let you know that the answer is indeed 42.

Arrr, matey!

If you go to Google Pirate, you’ll notice that your Google search interface has walked the plank–now everything is in pirate speak! Or, if you enjoy the Swedish Chef from the Muppet Show, visit this link instead to do your searches in “Swedish” (bork, bork, bork).

Go inside the TARDIS!

Google street view London

Police telephone box

Calling all Doctor Who fans: Head to Google Maps, and then do a search for “Police telephone box.” You’ll notice that you’ll be taken to London. Drag the pegman over onto the box to enter street view. You might notice a familiar looking box standing on the street. Click on its doors to move towards it, and you’ll be treated to a Google Street view of the inside of the TARDIS!
