Ok, this is so unbelievably funny I had to share it.
Please follow the following instructions;

1. Go to 'http://www.vogue.co.uk/'
2. Press the search bar and type on your keyboard 'up-key, up-key, down-key, down-key, left-key, right-key, left-key, right-key'
3. Whilst holding down shift, type 'BAAAAAAAAAA'

It has been like this since July I believe.

what happens, I don't get it to work. :oops:
I had to try it a few times before it worked for me -- don't worry so much about getting the number of As exactly right (you can type as many as you want once it gets started!), just keep typing while holding down 'shift.' And don't click out of the search box after you start typing, I think it messes up the command.

It's a cute little surprise so I don't want to ruin it for you!

It's called the konami code. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konami_Code

Most gaming nerds are aware of this code if they were active gamers in the 80's/90's.

Lots of sites are made by nerds, so they have this code! :lol:
Thanks a lot for sharing that, it is really interesting. I didn't actually know the origin of that, I just assumed it was random. I'll have to ask my boyfriend if he knows about it because he is studying IT (and is also pretty passionate about it) and was the one who showed me this thing with the Vogue site.
