The eerie Easter egg is perfect for fans of hit TV show (and originally video game) The Last of Us.

At the bottom of the page, a small red icon with a mushroom on will appear.

If you tap on it, a creepy fungus will spread across the screen.

Keep tapping it to fill the display with more and more of the fungus.

It’s supposed to by Cordyceps, a real-world fungi that has been co-opted by The Last of Us franchise.
