mythical creatures: June 2010 Archives

275x250.jpgNews magazine Newsweek.com is reporting on zombie attacks in New York -- but only after you enter the Konami Code on their homepage.

While the site looks zombie-free to most visitors, those pressing the buttons familiar to 80s Nintendo gamers are treated to alternative articles.

After pressing the Konami Code (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, b, a, enter) all normal articles are replaced with ones about a zombie invasion.

The lead article has the very un-Newsweek headline of "ZOMBIES ATTACK!" and others detailing their quest for brains and the cause of the invasion.

We can't decide which is more surprising the fact a coder hid this in the new Newsweek.com site… or that people are still typing the Konami Code everywhere they go.
