Youtube's Secret Video Game

Hate waiting for those YouTube videos to load? With this hidden game, those waits won't be so painful.

YouTube is a great video sharing website, but depending on your internet connection and your desired resolution, it can sometimes take a while for your video to load. In that meantime you can play Snake while your video loads.

How to Play:
When a YouTube video is loading, press the up key, and it turns the revolving balls into a snake game. You have to click in the video window first to have focus to that area.
