Google “Thanos” right now

“It was just a thing we thought would be fun,” tweeted Google’s liaison of search.

If you’re an Avengers fan, you will probably love this fun little Easter egg left by Google in its search results. If you’re not a fan (wave emoji), you’ll still probably get a kick out of it.

Basically, all you have to do is this:

  • Go to Google’s search window and type in “Thanos.” That’s the name of a super villain in the Marvel universe. (If you need a primer on Avengers: Endgame or Thanos’s whole deal, check out Joe Berkowitz’s roundup.)
  • Click the golden glove on the right side of your screen.
  • Stand back and watch as a magical force takes over, your search results turn to dust, and a bunch of cool sound effects play.

That’s pretty much it. Some Twitter users were asking if this was a sponsored feature, which would make sense given that Disney’s Avengers: Endgame comes out today. Google’s public liaison of search, however, said it was not. “It was just a thing we thought would be fun,” he tweeted. “Because it’s nice to have a little fun in life.”

We agree. Now go see the movie. Or don’t.
