Just in case you haven’t heard yet, YouTube is celebrating Geek Week next week and will be highlighting all sorts of nerdy content. But to celebrate and promote the upcoming celebration, YouTube started a little easter egg hunt on its site by tweeting this out:

If you couldn’t “crack the code to go retro” like me, here’s a little spoiler for you. Head on over to YouTube’s homepage and search for “/ geekweek”. Minus the quotes. The result is a nice throwback to the old days, and a reminder that no matter how much you hate Google’s latest redesign — it could be much, much worse.
